Women Can Do It was initially formed as an informal network of women who had attended the Women Can Do It trainings in Myanmar supported by the Norwegian Labour Party Women. The first training was conducted in 2011 following which the alumni network multiplied the WCDI trainings and also began to initiate other activities to enhance the capacity of women leaders, in particular during the 2015 elections. A small Coordination Unit was established to coordinate the activities but the network relied significantly on the members to implement the planned activities.
In 2016, the members agreed to establish WCDI as an organisation and appoint staff to be responsible for the implementation of the organisation’s programmes due to the limited time availability of members despite their commitment to its goals and objectives. The organisation would maintain its members who embody the sisterhood the organisation is built upon. The members would continue to play a role but with less responsibility for programme implementation.
This Constitution defines the organisational structures and processes for the establishment of WCDI as a membership organisation.
WCDI is an Organization that promotes women’s participation in decision-making at all levels by enhancing capacity ,creating space and bonding among sisterhood and evidence based advocacy
