As COVID-19 continues to impact communities worldwide, WJI is grateful to all of our supporters who have made our response to the crisis possible.
By offering legal and psychological counseling over the phone, delivering food and masks to families, and providing information about COVID-19 through a series of radio programming in local languages, we have responded to the pandemic in various ways. Check out our most recent blog post, created as part of WomenStrong International’s Learning Lab, for more on our response to the crisis.

WJI is excited to be included in the recent publication, Innovating to Address Gender-Based Violence, produced by the Gender & Innovation Working Group at the International Development Innovation Alliance.
The paper includes a collection of innovative practices to effectively tackle gender-based violence. It serves as a call to action to further develop and scale innovative solutions to address the root causes of gender inequality. We are proud that WJI's legal empowerment methodology has been recognized as a top innovative solution to ending violence against women and girls. Read the full publication here.
