WEDE (WOMEN EMPOWERMENT AND DEVELOPMENT)

WEDE (WOMEN EMPOWERMENT AND DEVELOPMENT)

This project targets women and girls who have not benefited from much of formal basic education. The project will help to build capacity of women and girls out of school in strategic planning capacities and train them in skills, which can lead to employment, self-esteem, and income generation for example tailoring, computer, simple trade skills, bakery, tie and dye making, knitting, carpentry, crop and animal management, simple Accounts, nutrition, food processing and many others.

Parents Concern discovered that when these poor women and girls are trained in skills and no support in form of providing grants as a start up fund for income generation are given, they go home and forget about the skill leaned. so it is very important that after the training they are provided with grants or soft loans to help them start some income generating activity using the skill attained. To empower them further we do introduce them to the Good Governance concepts and leadership skills and encourage them to initiate, support, train in technologies that reduce the work load of women. This will help to promote male participation in the family development programs. Men need to be persuaded to promote family planning, birth control, home management, promote gender equity and equality and advocate against domestic violence. If men themselves participate in these programs there will be a positive change in the community. It will just be wonderful for the families.

Lack of adequate exposure for women keeps them backward. so the project shall endeavour to organize, facilitate exchange study trips to encourage exposure and strategic planning among women. Women are always supported in only small projects. We would like to support and promote women farmers. traders, entrepreneurs, teachers/ health workers in private business and producers. Parents Concern believes that when women have money the whole family benefits.
