We connect
Canadian Crossroads International (CCI) believes that poverty can be eliminated and
equality for women and girls achieved. Each year our programming brings us closer.
Equality is measureable in women’s and girls’ capacity to assert their rights, in their
participation in politics and decisions that affect their lives, and in the passage of
new laws that afford them equal opportunity and protection. Equality increases in
palpable ways when women form collectives and earn a living wage; when men
and women pool their resources, providing for their families while contributing
to vibrant local economies. With partner organizations, Crossroads is providing
services to people in need and working to address root causes of poverty and
inequality. Crossroads’ clear focus on advancing women’s rights and achieving
sustainable livelihoods for all is improving lives. But we would rather show than
tell. The dispatches in the following pages serve as a testament to the impact of
our work with partners on the ground. Here are a few of our stories from Bolivia
to the Haida Gwaii archipelago, from Zimbabwe to Halifax to Mali.
