  • Over several years many international development organisations have recognised the need to address gender inequalities.

    It has long been acknowledged that gender inequality violates people’s human rights and keeps people in poverty, obstructing development in many countries.

    In March 2015 Christian Aid invited a number of faith-based organisations and institutions to a consultative workshop to discuss ways of addressing this. The outcome was the establishment of a movement of people of faith who will work together to bring about change. A global inception group began planning, and Side by Side is the product of many hours of collaboration. We are excited by the way people from across the globe are working together and are committed to seeing gender justice established.
