Who We are

Dignifying Women's Life


Women Concern was born out of concerns related to violence against women in our country and more particularly in the eastern area of the country which for more than two decades has been plunged into armed conflicts that sometimes confront tribes and / or ethnic groups or armed groups against the government and where the latter have proliferated and made communities vulnerable, especially women and girls.

In addition to these concerns, there are socio-cultural barriers in our environment which have long dissocialized women and girls to the point of stripping their dignity.

A society where the dignity of women / girls prevail

WOCO’s mission is to “bring rural women and girls to discover their potentials and support them in exploiting them for inclusive development” through a research-action based approach.
