We currently have 50 established and long-term partnerships on the ground in 10 countries. They are our veins into the communities, they have eyes and ears on the ground. Our partners have been able to build trust, both with communities and other stakeholders such as district governments and other duty bearers.
Working with in-country partners, enables us to respond to the needs of the women and girls we aim to reach. Our in-country partners are able to amplify the voices of women and girls as rights holders, to express their needs and tackle the barriers they face to be able to live a healthy life.
