An agreement signing ceremony commemorating the SLCDF and other project partners for a 3 year project “Let the Women Decide the Margin” was held on the 21st of January 2020. The event was joined by an European Union (EU) representative and officials from all other project partnering organizations like Centre for Women’s Research (CENW0R), Community Strength Development Foundation (CSDF), Sri Lanka College of Journalism, Rajarata Praja Kendraya (RPK), and Federation of Social Development Organizations (FOSDOO).

This project aims to Mobilize, organize and empower the most marginalized groups of women: female sex workers (FSWs), deserted women (DW), and single women (SW), in the selected DS Divisions in Mullaitivu, Vavuniya, Anuradhapura, Kurunegala, Matara, Gampaha and Colombo Districts to realize their socio-economic and political rights, and specifically their Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights (SRHR), and stand against discriminations towards them.

All partners will be meeting again shortly on the 3rd of February 2020 to proceed further with the preparations of the work plan process.
