Women’s Empowerment and Gender Development Program
Description of the Project:
MRF believes that local community and displaced people have the real power to find their own solutions to crises and conflict. The MRF organization sets out to accomplish its mission to empower the our local community to make this happen through its Women and Gender Development Program by advocating for women and girls rights and equipping the youth and marginalized women with vocational skills and knowledge to succeed in the information age.
MRF through its program on Women Empowerment and Social Justice is running the Hanad Women’s Learning Center; this center freely provides services in multiple skills development including tailoring, garment cutting, agriculture, community animal health care, and other vocational skills. More than 102 have benefited from this project since the centre was established.
This project is designed to support women and young girls gain skills and knowledge they can use to flourish and become more successful.
The Centre also offers education and service support for child mothers during the school day as well as psychosocial guidance for young students in need.
