Active political participation is central tenet of representative democracy and important for immigrants if they are going to be fully included in the society and become contributing citizens. Toward these ends, WOW Network creates an environment where East African women can advocate on matters of policy, run for political office, be elected, and participate meaningfully in every facet of civic and political life.
WOW Network identifies and recruits potential candidate for civic leadership and suitable public seats, committees and boards. Our program focus on how the candidates’ representation is related to the role of parties as representative institutions. As well as how women acquire the tools and skills necessary to participate successfully in all aspects of the political process.
