The project is expected to have effectively functioning 10 District Consortiums of Civil Society organisations and ensure women empowerment and gender justice in their member organisations at the end of the five years of the project. And also, it aims to establish gender focal points at district level, at least 200 civil society organisations link with the district consortium from targeted locations and make duty-bearers accountable for their roles and responsibilities.
