Strategic Overview

Networking & Partnerships

We have natured the ability to build strong collaborations and partnerships to achieve a common goal among Civic Society Organisations. As demonstrated in our current partnerships and networks in Eswatini, collaborations, partnerships, and networks can be powerful mechanisms for supporting the changes we want to achieve. We are able to structure both formal, semi-formal, or informal partnerships involving a variety of different actions by the partners, such as joint funding; pooling of resources; consultation and agreement to work together; in-kind support etc. Our doors are always open for new partnerships that make us a stronger voice for Women’s and Young People’s Rights.

 Alliances & Coalitions

Women Unlimited Eswatini is also working towards developing alliances with other African networks and international organizations to better achieve its objectives.  These alliances will mostly be temporary such as joint project ventures or events that do not require any or have a minimal formal agreement.

“Overcoming poverty is not a gesture of charity. It is an act of justice. It is the protection of a fundamental human right, the right to dignity and a decent life.”

“I believe in a world of justice and human rights for all. A world where girls can grow up free of fear of abuse. A world where women are treated with the respect and dignity that is their right. A world where poverty is not acceptable. My dear young friends, you can make this your world.”
