Who are we?
WLSA is an organisation which aims to contribute to the socio-economic, political, and legal advancement as well as protection of women and girls. This is achieved through strategic action research in the socio-legal field, lobbying and advocacy for legal reforms, policy changes, laws (including Swazi law and custom) and practices which discriminate and disadvantage women and girls.
Who are our Key Stakeholders?
WLSA has good relationships with key stakeholders. This is a strength the organisation will build upon going forward. No one organisation can work in isolation and, with limited resources, a group of organisations can accomplish more than anyone of them alone. Some organisations WLSA is going to engage with include Government, CANGO, NGOs, LutsangolwakaNgwane and private sector companies, among others.
Funding partners are key stakeholders of WLSA. WLSA Swaziland is currently being supported by the Catholic Aid for Overseas Development (CAFOD). CAFOD has invested in the turn round of WLSA and is currently supporting capacity strengthening of the organisation as it begins to implement the new strategy 2015 – 2019. It is envisaged that this support will continue through the current strategy period.
