EISA opened an office in Madagascar in 2007 with a specific focus on encouraging greater participation by women in public life.
The office is currently working with university students from the Ankatso University (Antananrivo/Madagascar), to provide capacity building skills to university students to enable them to contribute to the promotion and encouragement of women to enter into decision-making processes in Madagascar.
EISA Madagascar also works closely with the Vondrona Miralenta ho aníny Fampandrosoana (VMLF), an association of women supporting and working towards increased female representation in Malagasy political institutions. In February 2011 EISA expanded its scope of activities in Madagascar with the introduction of the Strengthening Electoral and Democratic Processes (SEDP) programme.
Promoting Women's Participation in Public Affairs
EISA has launched a project promoting the participation and representation of women through increasing their election to decision-making institutions.
