The Sisters For Change Community Network
Sisters For Change believes that by building a network to connect individuals, groups, communities and organisations working to prevent, investigate, respond to and remedy violence against women and girls, we can build a stronger community of practice for collective learning and shared endeavour. By interacting, sharing and supporting one another, we can all learn more, do better work, develop more innovative solutions and deliver greater impact on policy, laws and social change around the world.Sisters For Change connects its community through simple and robust Web and mobile technologies and applications. We see technology as an enabler to ensure that our community can achieve its maximum impact, and that our platform is easily accessible, scaleable and sustainable. We will launch Phase 1 of our Community Network in late 2014.
