The Tenɔnɔ program, which means resilience in the Ewe language (the lingua franca spoken in Togo, Benin, Ghana, and Côte d’Ivoire), aims to build the capacity and resilience of local women’s organizations to be effective, sustainable, and independent actors contributing to gender equality and women’s empowerment. This program has several Tenɔnɔ components including a training, a coaching session and a grant.
