Mission : WOCO’s mission is to bring rural women-girls to discover their potential and support them in its exploitation for inclusive development. Vision: WOCO aims “A society where the dignity of women/girls prevails” WOCO’s current strategy is based on three pillars: Education: Unquestionably, education is one of the accepted paths to empowerment. WOCO has opted to focus on the education of the girl to prepare her to be a capable mother at the household level but also a capable citizen present in all the structures (economic, social and political) of the life of her nation. . Capacity building: We aim to have women capable of recognizing their rights and claiming them. This capacity building is an effective means of protecting women and girls which aims to provide them with information, its usefulness and its exploitation to awaken not only their conscience but also those around them on their abilities and his aptitudes. Livelihood diversification: Poverty is the mother of all ills and has affected women and girls disproportionately. The diversification of livelihoods for women and girls is an effective way to end stigma, marginalization and dependency in order to have a confident woman who is productive and active in the life of the household and that of her society in general.
