FOCUSING ON THE INCREASE OF THE WOMEN EMPLOYMENT

The project emphasizes the importance of women’s inclusion in the workforce, one of the most important actors in shaping the future. Serious researches are needed in order to improve the current situation in terms of women’s participation in economic life, overcoming social ruptures and women’s participation in the workforce. In this context, the project is at a level to meet this need and touches to life. Within the scope of the project policies related to raising awareness will be developed for women taking part in the civil society process and non-governmental organizations working for women.

THE WOMEN ARE NOW “COLIBRİ BIRDS” FOR US IN THIS PROJECT

In the project, women are associated with “Colibri Birds”, which have the smallest volume but are strong enough to flap their wings 80 times per second. It is aimed to increase the participation of women in civil society at the point of holding on to life and progress and to ensure that they are supported at the academic level. From this point of view, legal legislation, digital marketing, occupational health and safety and the main expertise fields of the project partners will be integrated to the training module and e-learning platform for the women and will be disseminated to co-operatives, NGOs, municipalities and public and private sector related to the target group of the project.
