AID continues to provide support to poor and less-privileged women in Sierra Leone by offering them much needed skills to enable them create jobs for themselves thereby becoming self-reliant.
Sierra Leone continues to be ranked as one of the poorest countries in the world, ccording to the UN Human Development Index, . Within this frame of generalized poverty, women come worse off and have been found to be poorer than men. This is due to gender disparities existing with respect to access to and control of a range of assets including direct productive assets such as land and macro credit, human capital assets including education and health, etc.
From the funds raised through the GlobalGiving platform, the organization provided women's empowerment and human rights training programs for 5 rural community women in the Waterloo Rural District. Our sensitization programs in relation to women's empowerment, discrimination and abuse continue to positively impact the lives of women in the country.
We're grateful to our partners and friends who donated their hardearned cash towards this project through the GlobalGiving platform. Together, we're changing the lives of women in Sierra Leone.
