WGWLO – Working Group for Women and Land Ownership
  • 6, Sejal Apartments, Gurukul Road, Ahmedabad - 380052, Gujarat, India
  • + 91-79-48902220


The members of the network have taken a conscious decision that the WGWLO remains a non-formal body, which has institutionalized into its day to day functioning – principles of democratic and decentralized decision making and functioning. In order to consolidation of this decision, housing of the Secretariat of the network rotates amongst the member NGOs periodically.

The network secretariat is headed by a full-time coordinator who is responsible for overseeing day to day functioning. The network appoints a convener preferably from amongst the members to provide guidance and leadership to the team, also focusing on policy initiatives, and networking at national and international levels. A Steering Group is made of members elected/nominated from the general body for a term of two years; this is a crucial body which takes up collective planning, decision-making and monitoring of the activities and finance of the project based functioning of the network. An Advisory Group consisting of senior leaders/heads of organisations (from amongst the members) having expertise on resource rights, gender, livelihoods, advocacy, institution building, and team building has been formed to provide overall guidance and vision to the WGWLO.
