Network of Ethiopian Women Association

Women’s rights organizations, particularly local groups, are often best placed to respond to humanitarian emergencies, have the trust and knowledge of their communities, and have a comprehensive understanding of women’s and girls’ gender-based needs, fulfilling a frequently acknowledged service and knowledge gap in humanitarian action. However, both globally and in Ethiopia in particular, women’s rights organizations face several challenges to their engagement in the humanitarian sector such as lacking resources and capacities. These organizations often also have limited space to engage in participatory consultation with national and international humanitarian actors on their needs, issues, and demands. Therefore, the purpose of this Charter of Demand is to provide a tool for women led and women’s rights organizations to make their voices and demands heard.
