Programmes with UPVAN

 

ADVOCACY AND LOBBYING PROGRAMME

UPVAN advocates on issues affecting the voluntary sector and the community.  Meetings, workshops and conferences are organized in which all actors of civil society including media, academia and government participate. Efforts are to sensitize the participants on the issues and bring forth suggestions. The basic purpose of advocacy is to sensitize and build pressure upon the government to develop people oriented mechanisms and accordingly frame policies, to benefit the sector & the community. Support and contribution from other civil society groups are also forthcoming. The issues are studied in detail, documented and shared with other Civil Society organizations, Stakeholders and the relevant authorities for necessary action.

GENDER MAINSTREAMING

Women have always been at the receiving end in all spheres despite efforts to empower them. The latest effort of the Government to empower women and give a strong gender slant to their policy concerned is the enactment of 73rd Constitutional Amendment Act in 1992. In order to mainstream gender, Gender Information Center is established in UPVAN. It ensures that at least 33% women headed organizations are as members of UPVAN. The members are sensitized to mainstream gender & develop their own gender policy.
