The continued economic and food crises, the impact of climate change, and political instability Karen Takacs Darlene Bessey in many partners’ countries exacerbate conditions of extreme Executive Director Chair, Board of Directors 1 Program m es 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. LEAD i N G fOR chaNgE We Partner Women in the South are electing change, claiming their space in politics and shaping the laws that affect their lives. This year, Crossroads supported the Women’s Coalition of Zimbabwe (WCoZ) in its work to enshrine the rights of women in the nation’s constitution. Successful exchanges between women candidates in Dakar, Senegal and city councilors in Montreal, have spurred a new programme pairing women politicians in the two cities. In Ghana, ABANTU for Development’s mentorship programmes inspired CCI to launch a new project assisting partners to engage young women in politics. Through these partnerships, and many others, Crossroads is supporting women to become leaders and decision-makers in their communities.

Crossroads and many African partners work to advance the right of women to live free from abuse. This year, Crossroads supported Women in Law and Development in Africa-Ghana (WiLDAF) in its public education campaign about the recently passed Domestic Violence Act. This included community outreach and training members of the judiciary, traditional leaders and community volunteers. In Senegal, Crossroaders expanded Réseau Siggil Jigéen’s women’s resource centre and set up a system to collect statistics on abuse with the Association pour la promotion de la femme sénégalaise (APROFES). As women’s rights, sexual violence and the spread of HIV and AIDS are inextricably linked, Crossroads brought partners the Women and AIDS Support Network in Zimbabwe and Pro-Link in Ghana together to share prevention strategies.
