Women's Empowerment and Leadership Development for Democratisation


Peace cannot be achieved in a vacuum: WELDD and the Inter-Ethnic Solidarity Alliance (IESA)


IESA was barely formed when WELDD’s peace building training helped them to jump start activities in Sri Lanka. IESA is a coalition of six organisations. Four of these are women-led and focus on women’s rights, one is for men and women working on fishermans’ rights, while the other is a trade union promoting workers’ rights with a focus on women’s leadership. IESA’s approach is based on rights, justice and peace. Since we believe that peace cannot be built in a vacuum; we strive to locate people’s problems at the centre of our work.
