Not just another day at the office…

So right now I am in Kazbegi participating in the Gender Theme Group Retreat arranged by UNWomen and Asian Development Bank.

Today I and Mariam Gagoshashvili from Women’s Fund of Georgia facilitated one of the sessions; Brainstorming on how to strengthen partnership with civil society organisations working on gender equality and women’s rights issues. A very important and appreciated element in our presentation were the findings of the small survey which we conducted in our networks of Kvinna till Kvinna partner organisations and Women’s Fund of Georgia grantees – so many thanks to each and everyone who took the time to respond to our small survey.

The discussions were lively and we hope that it will lead to increased cooperation between International organisations and local women’s organisations/groups in order to strengthen women’s organising and a women’s movement.
