Women’s Islamic Initiative in Spirituality and Equity (WISE) Compact Program.
WISE Compact will work with local and national women leaders and
the organizations they work in. The programme aims to provide: a) a
global infrastructure for shared work among Muslim women’s groups,
organisations, institutions, and networks, b) religious context for
Muslim women’s dialogue about, and advocacy for, their rights, c)
an institutional voice for gender equality, and d) accessible
knowledge about effective ways to promote the equitable ethic of
Islam. The activities planned for each of the results include
development of WISE Compact design, develop partnerships with
Muslim women’s organisations to develop learning and training

create a comprehensive WISE Compact sustainability plan. The
programme will focus on Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Egypt, India,
Jordan, Morocco, Nigeria, Pakistan, Palestinian Administrative
