Since 2001, The Hunger Project (THP) in India, has been working towards empowering Elected Women Representatives (EWRs) as key change agents in the local institutions of governance (Gram Panchayats). Through its work, it also promotes, protects and upholds the rights of women under various International Conventions and Policies. THP India believes that the active participation of women in political and decision-making processes of local governance will help bring economic and social development to the villages of India.
THP participated in a 3-day Local Governance Initiative and Network’s (LOGIN) experience-sharing workshop on ‘Women’s Political Participation’ held in Bangkok, Thailand. There were 37 members from 11 LOGIN member-countries (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, India, Laos, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka). THP participates in Dasra’s Social Impact Leadership programme. The programme is a platform that brings together distinguished leaders from non-profit organisations to expand their potential, deliver insights, vision and skills to help increase their impact. THP participated in LOGIN’s 4th General Assembly (GA) held in December 2016 at Colombo, Sri Lanka. Over 100 change makers and practitioners in decentralisation and local governance attended the GA to discuss LOGINs learning agenda and reform priorities.
