Where to Find Orchid Project at CSW68

Friday 08 March 2024

We’re delighted to announce that Orchid Project will be present at the sixty-eighth session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW). CSW representatives of Member States, UN entities, and non-governmental organisations from around the world will all convene at the United Nations Headquarters in New York between March 11th to 22nd. We will all be gathering with the same objective in mind:  “accelerating the achievement of gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls by addressing poverty and strengthening institutions and financing with a gender perspective.”

You’ll find us at the following events that we are organising or supporting:
