- Outcome 6: A coherent, inclusive, and empowered CSO and Women’s movement framework to eliminate violence against women and girls is strengthened and operationalized at the national, subnational and community levels.

- Output 6.1 Women's rights groups and relevant CSOs have increased opportunities and support to share knowledge, network, partner and jointly advocate for GEWE and ending SGBV/HP, and promoting SRHR, with relevant stakeholders at sub-national, national, regional and global levels.
