ACEPís prime implementer Counterpart International and its implementing partners share a development vision in which women and men, girls and boys enjoy economic, social, cultural, civil, and political rights and are equally empowered to secure better lives for themselves, their families, and their communities; are equally able to access quality education and health≠care, accumulate and control their own economic assets and resources, exercise their own voice, and live free from intimidation, harassment, discrimination, and violence. Under ACEP, Internews supports women working in the media as well as media coverage of issues about and for women and ensures that media development continues to empower women both for their own civic engagement, and for the advancement of the families and communities to which they belong.
