The MujerProspera Challenge works at the nexus of:

  • Advancing Women’s Economic Security by improving working conditions and labor protections, recruitment, retention, promotion, and the advancement of women in dignified, stable work that results in increased access, productivity, and a fair and stable income in the workforce.
  • Addressing Harmful Gender Norms and Enable Safe Work Environments through promoting positive gender norms, egalitarian attitudes and behaviors, a holistic safe working environment, and safe transportation to and from work, supportive of women’s economic security and agency.

USAID Challenges use open competition to incentivize local and global entrepreneurs, academics, civil society, and other passionate problem solvers to address a well-defined problem, pilot and test innovative approaches and scale the most promising solutions.
