Rooftops Canada Launches the Women’s Spaces Program in four African Countries
Rooftops Canada, the international development program of cooperative and social housing organizations in Canada, recently launched its Women’s Spaces project. This initiative aims to secure equal access to land and livelihoods for women in Angola, Kenya, Uganda, and South Africa. Rooftops Canada recognizes and promotes the right to housing as a development imperative, and believes it is fundamental to alleviating gender-based poverty. Women’s Spaces will work with women to use their homes and the space around them for income-generating activities, including food production. You can read more about the project here.
