A program for transformative change

Building on the successful legacy of the recently concluded Growth and Economic Opportunities for Women (GrOW) program, GrOW EA addresses evidence and research gaps to inform policies and interventions in five countries in the region, namely Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda and Tanzania.

Supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, and IDRC, GrOW EA believes that empowering women in the economy and closing gender gaps in the world of work are key to achieving gender equality.

Growth and Economic Opportunities for Women (GrOW) – East Africa is a five-year program that spurs transformative change to advance gender equality in the world of work, with a focus on gender segregation, unpaid care, and women’s collective agency.

Why Us.

The program, therefore, seeks to develop effective, evidence-based approaches and solutions that will empower women and girls to take charge of their own lives and livelihoods. It considers societal power dynamics that shape women’s choices, the role of social norms, and how gender barriers intersect with the disadvantages arising from other aspects of identity such as race, income levels, and age.
