UNIFEM (United Nations Development Fund for Women), represented by its Regional Director for the Southern Cone, Rebecca Tavares, and Program Officer Junia Puglia, visited ELAS headquarters in Rio de Janeiro in March.

On the agenda of the meeting were ongoing actions developed in partnership between the two organizations, such as the Giving for change Award and the "Human Rights and Citizenship of Young Women" Project, the latter carried out by three Funds belonging to ConMujeres (Consortium of Latin American and Caribbean Women's Funds). Rebecca also spoke to the ELAS team about the restructuring and changes that will be implemented at UNIFEM by the United Nations.
