Empowering the Women of Tafilah through Gender Advocacy and Civic Engagement

2018

The overall vision of this project is to enhance civic engagement by creating a local, grassroots community of women who are able to advocate for the gender needs of their communities and have the knowledge and skills to hold local policy and decision makers accountable when their policies and development plans lack gender sensitivity.

The project targets seven CBOs in Tafila, includig: Al Qassaba, Al Hasa, Eima, Ain Al Bayda, Buseira, Qadissiya, and Garandal. The project is being carried out in cooperation with the Jordanian National Commission for Women and with a support from UN Women.
