Rural women

Comments Off on Rural women

This project aims at conducting training sessions to empower rural Community Based Organisations and women organisations with skills and expertise on how to enforce their rights as protected in national, regional and international statues in the poor and marginalized communities. The Objectives of this Project are twofold:

To simplify statues and treatise for rural communities about the obligations of provincial and local government to deliver Economic and Social Rights with a particular reference to social grants to women, the aged, the unemployed, youth and children.

To increase the knowledge of women’s organisations and CBOs operating within indigent urban and rural communities, on the crucial importance of the legislation and statutory framework that promote and protect them so that advocacy initiatives are embarked at local level and holding government accountable for not meeting international, regional and constitutional obligations.
