The organization currently operates with a staff, including the executive director and four volunteers managing the various programs. The members include 5 founding members, 20 special members, and 64 ordinary group members.

WEICAM’s mission is to promote human rights and democracy, put more women in leadership positions, and involves women in economic activities that will reduce poverty in their communities.

We aim to achieve our mission through: Legal advice, Education and training, advocacy and lobbying, Capacity building, Language and computer literacy and research.

Our various programs are designed to provide an integrated approach to promoting human rights, addressing issues of gender equality and gender equity, economic empowerment and human rights of all.
