Gender Centre for Empowering Development (GenCED)

What We Aim At

Our aim is to empower women and youth for sustainable development in our communities. This will be done through research, evidence-based advocacy, capacity building and information sharing

How We Do It

GenCED’s work is  aimed at helping increase women’s participation in decision-making and in our Governance process. GenCED also seeks to do more research on women’s experiences and participation in policy making and their representation which as a result will influence the level of advocacy and outreaches which the women need to increase their understanding of our democratic process.

Women Participation

Nairobi Forward-Looking Strategies

Adopted in 1985, these are strategies that laid out efforts for action to advance the status of women in national and international economic social, cultural and legal development.  GenCED’s work seeks to implement this strategies

In Ghana

In order to achieve gender equality and equity, measures and policies need to be put in place especially in democratic processes, structures of power and decision-making procedures in Ghana. 

In governance

Both in Ghana and larger West Africa, the participation of women women is still law. This is an undermining of democratic processes as stated by the constitution. Through capacity building we sim to get more women and youth active.

Women Contesting for Parliamentary Seats.

We believe that multiparty democracy provides the  opportunity to enhance civic participation, social accountability, and economic governance  which includes mechanisms/platforms to increase men’s and women’s access to increased  knowledge, participate in decision-making processes, and demand accountability from  their duty bearers. However, the lack of civic knowledge among women has worsened  their participation and representation in decision-making, election and governance, and the  demand and the protection of their rights. As a result women seeking to represent their constituents are lower. This can be attributed to lack of knowledge, financial ability and cultural issues.
