Country Advocacy

The Deliver for Good Campaign has initiated dedicated advocacy and communication efforts in Kenya and Senegal, with work beginning in India soon. In each country, local civil society organizations are convening partners to drive country-specific advocacy and communications strategies devoted to ensuring girls’ and women’s issues are prioritized in the implementation of the SDGs. The country coalitions — comprised of cross-issue, cross-sector, and cross-generational experts — are designed to better facilitate the coordination of advocacy efforts across the range of areas affecting girls and women.

Campaign Focus Countries

The Deliver for Good Advisory Group selected the three focus countries — India, Kenya, and Senegal — based on a variety of criteria including:

  •  The burden of gender-inequality issues affecting girls and women;
  •  The strength of civil society networks in the countries;
  • The involvement of governments in implementing development agendas, including toward the SDGs; and
  • The complementary efforts underway — by civil society and governments — to advance gender equality and the health, rights, and wellbeing of girls and women in the countries.
