Equipping and Positioning Women for Gender Equality
The Centre for Advancement of Development Rights (CEADER) is a Nigeria-based non-governmental, not-for-profit women’s organization that promotes and protects women and girls’ human rights. To achieve this, the organization carries out projects and activities designed to increase women and girls’ capacity to overcome gender-based discrimination and strengthen their participation in leadership and development activities in their communities. CEADER thus works with women and girls to build their capacity through human rights education, leadership training as well as other thematic trainings. CEADER also carries out advocacy and campaign activities as tools for sensitizing members of the general public and for holding relevant agencies accountable to fulfilling their obligations to women and girls.
CEADER’s work is largely based on the provisions of relevant international and local human rights laws, especially, the Convention on Elimination of All forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR) and the Child Rights Convention (CRC). CEADER’s work is carried out through its 4 main programs.
