The Foundation Luna Creciente promotes and strengthens concrete processes for the improvement of the integral life of women, supporting their organization, direct political participation, access to information generation of knowledge and direct expression of their realities and proposals.
Its primary action is to strengthen women's organization in promoting spaces for training, information and direct expression at local, national, regional and global levels, and to contribute to advocacy policies and proposals to reduce gaps and to increase women's real access to the exercise of all their rights, linked to each other, such as the governance of land centered on people.
Their objectives are to achieve structural changes in the systems of democracy, enabling women to make their voices heard, to contribute to the organizational strengthening and political participation of women from popular sectors in their diversity, to influence the achievement of institutional and public policies for the advancement of human rights and women's rights, to maintain and strengthen alliances with other women's, feminists' and social movements and to influence the positive change of conscience, social imaginary, values â€‹â€‹and attitudes of respect for life and human and women's rights, through alternative communication materials that express the voices of women.
Luna Creciente is a National Movement active in five Ecuadorian provinces, that since its foundation in 2004 has fought for women empowerment.
