International Women’s Development Agency is the only Australian agency run entirely by women, focusing on gender equality and women’s rights across Asia and the Pacific.
IWDA believes that women have the potential to transform their lives, their communities and the world. Yet women continue to face significant discrimination and barriers to decision-making on issues that affect their lives. Working in partnership with local women’s organisations toward our vision of a sustainable and just world for women, our practical and rights-based programs directly address poverty and oppression of women in Cambodia, Timor-Leste, Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and the Thai-Burma border. These projects are most effective because they are devised and managed by women who live and work in the communities.
Our programs address three key areas – women’s safety and security, women’s civil and political participation, and women’s economic empowerment and sustainable livelihoods.
