EMPOWERMENT OF WOMEN
WOMEN CREATING COMMUNITY CHANGE
Additionally, women are often the backbone of poor families in the developing world as men migrate for work or even abandon their families for good. Our programs support women in poor and marginalized communities with a supportive framework through which they can build their confidence and acquire knowledge and skills. Weekly meetings focus on group links, women's rights, environmental awareness, health and hygiene (with a focus on women's and children's health), budget, savings and income generation. They will become independent by learning a trade, meeting their needs as well as those of their families: alphabetization and calculation, growing vegetables, breeding, production of food products (jams, preserves, cheeses), participating in agricultural work by following a project, handicraft, learning English.
In all the communities where Sylphi Foundation Nepal works, we encourage women to take an active role in the public sphere, including in the village council and other bodies of local government, empowering them to become agents. of change in their communities.
