Institute for Faith and Gender Empowerment
Since 2013, IFAGE (formerly Ekklesia Foundation for Gender Education EFOGE) has been at the forefront of fighting for equality and justice for women and girls in Sub Saharan Africa. The main objective continues to be addressing gender-gaps in the African context and to challenge structures and systems of patriarchy, poverty, and attitudes in the society which fuel violence against women and girls.
The IFAGE strategy is to harness the potential of faith groups and religious communities in sub-Saharan Africa in order to address and transform harmful social gender norms that are the root causes of sexual and gender-based violence, injustices, and inequalities of the area.
We fight to overcome these issues that are deeply entrenched in the socio-cultural, religious, political, and economic institutions and that continue to oppress, disempower, and endanger the lives of many women and girls in the society, based on gender.
