Gender equality is one of our core values. We are actively striving to close the gender gap and strengthen women’s empowerment.
SOCODEVI sets the stage for the full and effective participation of women as powerful agents of change. The organization also facilitates their access to and control of resources and benefits that lead towards their integration into the formal economy.
The cooperative and associative model that SOCODEVI promotes is an effective tool for empowering women and closing the gaps between women and men. The organization also focuses on structured projects for inclusive and sustainable economic development.
Our organization relies on a team of gender equality specialists, both at our headquarters to ensure a strong institutional approach, and in the field to ensure a thorough understanding of each context.
