WERC together with the Women’s Voice and Leadership Sri Lanka – The Asia Foundation, launched this project with the aim of building the capacity and to strengthen the voice of women in Sri Lanka.

The project is organized to build the capacity of selected women activists, development workers, academicians and researchers and indirectly their organizations and workplaces through a Certificate Course in Women’s Studies in the local languages. This is a multi-disciplinary course, which seeks to combine both theory and activism into a comprehensive strategy for social transformation with a special focus on gender relations.

It also works to strengthen the voice of women in Sri Lanka through facilitating collective action on vital issues pertaining to the advancement of women and women’s equality through conducting a series of lectures and discussions on current topics and issues that affect women and limit them under the Sri Lanka Women’s NGO Forum.
