Economic Justice and Economic Empowerment

Working with rural women, we have increasingly dealt with and recognised the need to ensure that any discussion on the economy takes cognizance of the need for distributive justice, value of women’s labour, refusal of land rights for conflict affected people, indigenous communities and women and restriction of market access for marginalised peoples in
Sri Lanka. As impacts of global pandemics and climate change severely affect the most poor in unequal ways, we need their voice to lead our decisions regarding a sustainable future.

  • Strengthen disaster resilience and risk reduction initiatives at community level and bring national recognition for community proposals.
  • Strengthen efforts to analyse and respond to socio-economic, environmental needs by community members.
  • Strengthen Sanjeevi- women owned sustainable businesses that address serious needs of women and other marginalised groups.
