Show Up And Shape
VOICE exists to expand the shrinking space for women and girls in crisis and disaster settings. We promote interventions that are feminist-informed and led by local women and girls themselves.
Our challenge is to transform the outdated humanitarian system and the way donors address the needs of women and girls in crisis.
We trust the insight, expertise, and leadership of women and girls. It’s time to enable them to engage with the humanitarian system in a way that benefits them, where they are the ones determining how assistance is provided.
How do we overcome that challenge?
VOICE works with women and girls to develop locally-created innovations to improve disaster response. We deploy a team of experts with in-depth knowledge and experience on violence against women and girls in humanitarian settings to work with local female leaders to drive action within their communities.
We provide guidance to organizations large and small to help integrate solutions identified by women and girls into their programs. We also advise influential leaders – on actions that address violence occurring within their own operations.
