WDO Programs


Introducing the Programs

The WDO being the steering OIC Organ for women’s empowerment and gender equality, its first Programmatic cycle is anchored on four main pillars which are Economic Empowerment and Financial Inclusion, ending all Forms of Violence against women and girls and harmful practices (VAW & HPs), Strengthening the Role of Women in Preventing and Fighting Corruption and Women’s Leadership in Promoting Peaceful and Inclusive Societies.

The choice of these thematic areas stems from high-level intensive consultations with OIC Ministerial Experts and WDO’s current Member States as well as, the need to align with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation Plan of Action for the Advancement of Women (OPAAW) and the different OIC resolutions relevant to women issues.
