Areas of focus

Our work is organised around three main areas of focus that reflect the priorities of the Commonwealth: its people and its institutions. Read our Strategic Plan
  • Cross-cutting themes

    Our cross-cutting themes are infused in everything we do; they are a part of how we think and how we work.

  • Gender Equality

    We understand that gender inequality is a major challenge to our vision of a Commonwealth of just and inclusive societies.

  • Small and Vulnerable States

    We recognise that civil society in some of our Member States requires special attention and support.

  • Young People

    We ensure that young people's involvement in the Foundation's work is actively sought and encouraged.
