Description, goals and expected results

This new project is entitled ‘Economic Empowerment for Political Action” and it is a pilot project that links economic empowerment with political action. The main idea of this pilot project is to encourage and support women who are already economically empowered to raise their awareness and actions on the public and political arena.  It is also based on the hypothesis that economic empowerment does not automatically lead to political participation, thus work has to be done in this regard. In addition, women who are economically empowered have the potential to raise their voices and make impact if they decide to.     

Results achived by the end of the activity period
