Productive Organization for Women in Action

Sexual and reproductive health and rights; Violence against women


Productive Organization for Women in Action (POWA) is an organization based in southern Belize, that advocates for the rights of women and girls to live lives free from violence, exploitation and abuse. In 2003, POWA was formed out of a project to support the empowerment of women in response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic, as well as other cross-cutting issues that included gender-based violence. In 2011, it established a youth arm called Girl POWA to support adolescent girls who have experienced gender-based violence. Its members are certified peer counsellor and provide outreach to communities to raise awareness on human rights, SRHR, GBV, HIV/AIDS and the gender inequalities affecting women and girls.
