We aim to combat sexual and gender-based violence through education, workshops, and empowerment.

Halgan on Taking The Lead
Why is the Taking The Lead network important to you?
"For us, Taking The Lead is a crucial platform which enables us to secure essential resources for RLO funding and capacity development, helps us write resource proposals and finally, acts as a bridge between us and funders and donors worldwide."
With more funding and resources, our organisation could...
"complete projects on time and ensure that funding will achieve 100% benefit to the intended population."
A shift from negative to positive narratives about refugees would lead to...
"the end of long camp stays and improved living conditions for refugees."
If refugees could influence decisions that affect them, it would mean...
"greater trust and RLO support from donors, enabling more effective fundraising for our projects."
OUR VISION FOR THE FUTURE
