    IOM in Sudan is committed to addressing gender in its programming as well as through giving equitable opportunities to male and female employees across the organization. Each unit works with gender in mind on project design, implementation and analysis. We have opened two women’s centers, a day care center, delivered on the job trainings, resettled families, provided WASH and health services and distributed ES/NFI kits, all of which have benefited hundreds of thousands of women, with many projects specifically addressing gender related vulnerability and opportunity.
