Fiji Women’s Rights Movement (FWRM) was established in 1986 by a group of 56 women from
various backgrounds. FWRM is a Suva-based multi-ethnic and multicultural non-governmental organisation committed to removing discrimination against women through institutional reform and attitudinal change. FWRM’s four major pillars of work are: democratisation, institutional, structural and policy transformation, intergenerational leadership and organisational strengthening.

The YFemRise Program will be working simultaneously with two cohorts of diverse young women using two different models with the objective of building agency, changing relations and transforming structures in two different contexts by engaging with different stakeholders and integrating existing as well as innovative methodologies including gender equality and social inclusion.
