Advocacy and Campaigns
As a rights-based center for the rural women, PKKK aims to open channels for assistance in the areas of training, marketing and product development to help transform rural women into empowered self-propelling women’s rights activists and rural entrepreneurs. Towards this end, it undertakes campaigns to chart the struggle of the ranks of the rural women on key issues as well as to ensure that the rights of rural women are respected and promoted. As we face a time of unprecedented and life-threatening climate challenges that wreak havoc on the life and the economy, we banner a climate centered work towards the pursuit of gender equity.
