The ‘Strengthening and Linking Women-Led Efforts to Promote Women’s Property and Literacy Rights in Sierra Leone’ project was carried out by Oxfam and partners in two districts of Sierra Leone from 2010 to 2013.

The project had two aims. First, to strengthen the capacity of and improve networking between community-based groups and national women’s networks to raise awareness of women’s property and literacy rights. Second, to advocate for greater participation of women in decision making on property ownership and for a more enabling environment for women to exercise their property and literacy rights.

These reports document the findings of a quasi-experimental evaluation carried out in March 2013 that sought to assess the impact of the activities of this project.
