Advocacy and Policy Development 

Year of Establishment: ????? 

 

 

ABAAD uses policy dialogue and advocacy as a mechanism to promote an equitable and violence-free society. Knowing the pattern of power distribution in dialogue settings, ABAAD is committed to setting positive channels with community leaders, religious leaders, policy makers, and the media. We strongly believe that promoting gender equality requires the comprehensive and coordinated efforts of a number of actors and as such, we consider all stakeholders and target groups as full and integral partners to ensure the development of non-discriminatory laws, policies and legislation.
