  • 8. Self-mobilization
    • • People participate by taking initiatives independent of external agents
    • They form networks through external resources but retain control over how resources are used
    • This mobilization may or may not challenge existing distributions of power
    • The ideal outcome is empowerment of marginalized groups such as women
  • 9. Women’s participation will be promoted when women have been included in:
        • defining the problem being addressed;
        • preparing the project proposal;
        • the membership of the project team;
        • all levels of decision-making.

        • Women’s lack of confidence or self-esteem
