EMPOWERED WOMEN, EMPOWER WOMEN.
Our main objective is to empower Siwa’s women by building their capacities and competences. We aim to improve their living conditions, by conducting vocational training, in order to promote employment so they can independently generate a sustainable source of income. Women will be equipped with constructive knowledge and skills on the fields of education and heritage revitalization.
‘Empowering women leads to better education and heritage revitalization.’
Siwa is a conservative society in which gender segregation is dominant and women fulfill traditional roles. The participation of women in the labor market and their educational level is one of the lowest of the country, which has a negative impact on women’s self-reliance.
To enable/facilitate the participation of women, this project is an all-women’s project. Thereby, women participating in the project will be supported and relieved of their family obligations, as their children will have access to quality preschool education free of charge.
