Special Projects refers to work done to research, conceptualise and incubate projects for later integration into the work of the Coalition of African Lesbians. Issues are identified by staff and members and agreements made about which to prioritise for development. As soon as the Project is designed and established, a new project is explored, designed and developed.
A number of mechanisms are used to ensure the systematic implementation of these projects. Changes associated with the projects are planned for and tracked through financial planning and budget analysis, evaluation systems and mechanisms that question and challenge our investments and their outcomes and impacts.
The list of issues and groups that have been identified by members and staff for project development in the period 2014 to 2018 are Women Human Rights Defenders, Women’s Health, Young Women, Older Women, Disabled Women:
