Voices from the Grassroots Project

voices from the grassroots:
COVID-19 and Women from the Global South


The Voices from the Grassroots (VfG) project was initiated by organizational and individual members of the Gender Equality Hub (GE Hub) of the Ontario Council for International Cooperation in April 2020. The objective of the VfG project was to document the impact of COVID-19 on the lives of women and girls in Afghanistan, Guatemala, Honduras, Kenya, Mali, Philippines, South Sudan, and Uganda. The project’s overarching goal is to amplify the voices of women and girls from these countries through stories of their lived experiences and their messages to world leaders, captured through a digital flipbook and shared through virtual events and social media campaigns.
