'Making Women's Voices and Votes Count' is a two-year project (2013-2014) that aims at the capacity-building of elected women representatives from Panchayati Raj Institutions, and strengthening the linkages between elected women and women's collectives, for building a vibrant women's political constituency at the grassroots, and gendering local governance structures, processes and agendas. The partnering organisations in this project supported by UN Women and the National Mission for the Empowerment of Women are: IT for Change in Mysore (Karnataka), Kutch Mahila Vikas Sangathan (KMVS) in Kutch (Gujarat) and Area Networking and Development Initiatives (ANANDI) in Bhavnagar (Gujarat). At each of the three sites, the project aims at developing an innovative ICT-enabled model for the capacity-building of elected women representatives, and networking them with other women leaders and women's collectives at the community level.
