Our Focus

GMSP understands, through the work of its partners, that as inequality grows, so do social and health problems in communities. This leads to unacceptable breaches of rights and dignities, particularly impacting the most marginalised: women and girls.

 

Meet Meera, a young girl living in India.

A girl's journey means that she encounters varies challenges throughout her life.

Having insight into some of these issues has helped to shape GMSP’s focus areas and to understand the need to improve the rights and lives of vulnerable communities. While there is no one solution, we believe through collaboration and a multipronged approach to our funding, we can support girls like Meera.

ECONOMIC PARTICIPATION

& AGENCY

HEALTH

EDUCATION

This is Meera

she is 12 years old, lives in India and wants to be a nurse

But since birth, her opportunities have been limited because of her

gender

ECONOMIC PARTICIPATION & AGENCY

70% of the world’s poor are women

Meera is one of those women.

Her family lives below the poverty line and her ability to negotiate with her husband and in her community is weak.

RIGHTS & JUSTICE

Meera’s friend in the UK, Aysha is also at risk of violence

Suicide rate of black minority ethic women is 3x higher than other women in the UK.

Aysha, in London, needs help but does not know where to get it

Like other black, minority and ethnic (BME) women in the UK, Aysha’s needs are  not understood nor is it deemed appropriate within her community for her to  voice her concerns or to seek external help

HEALTH

Poor sanitation 

in Meera’s village means that her and her friends’ health and safety are at increased risk which in turn acts as a barrier to their education

 

CHANGE IN ATTITUDES

Meera in India,

and Aysha in the UK,

want better lives for
their daughters

They want them to have opportunities for a good education and job, to be healthy and to feel safe, and to participate in decision-making that affects their lives. To make this happen, they need the attitudes of men and women towards gender to change.
