Program Implementation: OPAD’s Gender Stereotypes and Social Norms programs are implemented through the following key strategies:
  1. Education and Awareness: We conduct workshops, training sessions, and awareness campaigns to educate individuals and communities about the harmful effects of gender stereotypes and social norms. These initiatives aim to promote critical thinking, empathy, and understanding of gender equality issues.

OPAD works closely with governments, NGOs, and other stakeholders to influence policies and create an enabling environment for gender equality.
