IT for Change, Kutch Mahila Vikas Sangathan (KMVS), and Area Networking and Development Initiatives (ANANDI) are partnering in the 'Making Women's Voices and Votes Count', a two-year field project funded by UN Women. Under this project, which commenced in January 2013, the three organisations with the support of the National Mission for the Empowerment of Women, aim at using ICTs to catalyse a critical mass of women in local governance, construct a horizontal platform for peer-based support, and develop a discourse of governance and politics that is informed by women's rights perspectives. Specifically, the three organisations seek to harness the propensities of ICTs in their local organising efforts with Elected Women Representatives (EWRs) and marginalised women's collectives. IT for Change will be working in Karnataka and the other two organisations will be working in Gujarat.
