Réseau Siggil Jigéen (RSJ) promotes and protects women’s rights in Senegal, working through its network of 16 member organizations primarily on sexual and reproductive health, youth leadership, literacy and microfinance.  

RSJ’s journey to becoming DDA champions

With support from EM2030, RSJ has, through a data-based advocacy approach with local authorities and private sector companies, influenced resource mobilization, increasing financing for reproductive health in three communes of Senegal. Through its DDA committee, composed of 20 DDA training alumni from a wide range of civil society groups in Senegal; RSJ promotes the use of data in the work and advocacy efforts of Senegalese policymakers, civil society and media. 

RSJ has supported online campaigns that have reached over 50,000 people and engaged policymakers throughout the Generation Equality Forum process, an initiative to accelerate investment and implementation on gender equality convened by UN Women. 

As a result of these efforts, RSJ was invited by the Women’s Ministry’s Directorate for Equity and Gender Equality of Senegal to contribute to the development of the action plan, and implementation of the recommendations that came out of the Generation Equality Forum
