“Women’s Initiatives Supporting Group” since its foundation actively works with those local and international networks and coalitions, that are directly connected to the organization’s strategic goals on various stages of development. In 2001-2004 WISG, as the founder, was actively involved in several coalitions that were focused on issues of women’s rights and domestic violence – “Coalition of NGOs working on Women’s Rights” and “Coalition Against Domestic Violence”. In 2003-2008, when the main target group of WISG were women living in rural areas, the organization joined the international network of agrotourism as well.
Taking into account the focus of the organization, its target groups and the strategic plan, nowadays WISG is part of several international and local networks, including:
