Gender equality is not a slogan or a trend. It is about a fundamental commitment to rights and justice. It is about transforming lives, realizing potential and pursuing dreams and aspirations. Achieving it requires more than words. For an organization like UNRWA it is an operational imperative: empowering women and girls means improving the quality, relevance and sustainability of services. It means investing in a better future.
