Challenge

Women in rural Armenia are still much more likely to be unemployed than men. This trend continues. Women constitute 70% of the officially registered unemployed in Armenia. Women still have lower paying jobs than men, and are not included in decision making process concerning economic issues that concern them and their families. Sustainable Development Goals addressing this problem: #1 No Poverty #2 Zero Hunger #3 Good Health and Well Being #5 Gender Equality #8 Decent Work and Economic Growth

Solution

Using the SDG goals and Fair Trade principles, in rural Armenia the project will: - create economic opportunities - contribute to a better diet for families through more disposable income - open opportunities for a higher life quality for families - contribute to great gender equality in economic activities - provide a fair wage and decent working conditions - prevent child labour practices

Long-Term Impact

Long terms impacts of the project will be: - stable incomes for an increasing number of women - better health in families due to better dietary habits - increased participation in economic decisions for women in their families and in their communities - better skills for business management through experience - clean and safe working environment through better knowledge and awareness

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a DOCX file (projdoc.docx).
