This year, through continuing to evolve our ways of working and dedicating ourselves to supporting local priorities, we achieved some incredible transformations with the help of people like Akanesi.
We have supported women to embrace opportunities and overcome inequality, invested in their sustainable livelihoods, and supported them to become leaders and build resilient communities ready to face the increasing impacts of climate change and economic shocks.
