Gender Links

Pauvreté

Our main activities include :

 (1) Gender Justice : We train women coming from poor family background and victims of violence to be economically independent. Training we provide include : entrepreneurship, literacy, self esteem and leadership. Under the justice section, we have newly opened a Halfway Home for young homeless female adults coming from children shelter and the Rehabilitation Youth Centre (RYC) who have nowhere to go. We provide sheltering for one year, link them with job opportunities and be financially independent.

(2) Gender and Local Government : We work with the local authorities (village, district and municipal councils) to ensure that there is gender budgeting, we train counsellors to have a gender perspective at local decision making level.

(3) Gender and Media : We work closely with media houses and journalists to eliminate gender bias in the media and advertising.
