Women Empowerment Organization is an independent, non-profit organization that aims to promote gender equality and fair opportunity for women to participate meaningfully in all spheres of life because, in WEO, we strongly believe that human rights, freedoms, access to and control over power and resources belong to both women and men without any discrimination.
