EMpower’s girl-driven initiatives featured in CORO newsletter

Posted 22 May 2019 in EMpower News, Grantee Partner News   |   Share


Our grantee partner, Commitee of Resource Organisations for Literacy (CORO) recently released its newsletter featuring stories of change and latest news from the field! As CORO celebrates its 30th anniversary, we are so proud of everything they have accomplished, especially in the context of gender-focused work. We are also delighted to see the impact of EMpower’s girl-driven initiatives, such as the Learning Community, and the Girls Advisory Council, in this newsletter.

CORO is one of the organizations spearheading the Learning Community in Mumbai! Last month, the girl leaders of the Learning Community in Mumbai released a Charter Of Demands at a press conference – it received great coverage and was picked up by 10 newspapers and 2 news channels.

CORO was also a winner of EMpower’s unique award initiative launched last year, where current grantee partners in India applied for a chance to run a pilot project guided by the GAC’s recommendations. As a part of this project, Nikita Jadhav, our GAC girl leader and CORO’s representative, took up the idea of working with boys around social norms to reduce gender disparity in communities. Through workshops, meetings and a campaign to address gender-based discrimination, this six-month pilot was successful in directly involving 150+ adolescents and driving impact at the community-level!

A big thank you to CORO! You play an instrumental role in helping us build and sustain the momentum of EMpower’s girl-driven work!
