Skills development


The goal of our skills development projects is to empower vulnerable women financially and socially.

When a woman earns a salary, the entire family benefits. Through our skills development projects, we focus on empowering and supporting women. More than 100 women are enrolled to learn a skill so they can get a job as a tailor or beautician, for instance. In our courses, we also teach women about their rights and provide support and counselling to help them cope with abuse, oppression and other harsh living conditions.
