Working with our partners we are:

  • supporting civic participation in transparent and accountable government through civic education and awareness;
  • raising people’s awareness of their civic and voter rights to promote increased participation in elections;
  • strengthening the capacities of civil society organizations to advocate for the respect of human rights;
  • promoting equitable representation of women in decision making;
  • eliciting public support in all six regions of Somaliland for women’s representation in elections;
  • supporting free and fair elections through election observation missions.
