Challenge

Decades of clashes and strife in Guerrida left, most Tamar women and girls illiterate, jobless, poor, widowed, the only option for survival is to join the FUC rebel force for retaliation or for Security and protection., or give clandestine sexual favors to militants and former rebels. Civilians, aid workers, refugees, and IDPs situations steadily worsen. Most humanitarian organizations suspend operations due to a lack of basic security for life and property.

Solution

Corridors of Peace would provide the female victims (women and girls) an opportunity to learn skills such as tailoring and embroidery, agricultural skills, and income-generating skills, so that they could use these skills to support themselves, their families and community. Once Empowered, these women would replicate the training in their own communities, give women and older girls a chance to catch up on years of missed schooling by learning vocational skills and empowering others.

Long-Term Impact

After the first 2 years, 100 women and girls would be empowered every year. They will become independent and mentors to other victims in their societies. They would gain back their dignity and integrity. There would be an improvement in the standard of life of the female victims, socially, economically, culturally as they gain more opportunity for a better life. Startup resources would be given in groups and certified beneficiaries would be encouraged to work in groups in their local communities
