Women are unrepresented in social, economic and political arenas due to weaknesses associated with Somalia or complete lack of non-gender sensitive policies, lack of economic capacity, cultural limitations and domestic burdens and clan-based representation system. Widespread ignorance among community and women and girl-child in particular is a major challenge to any meaningful development in Somalia at large. The project will not only benefit the direct beneficiaries but also the community.


By equipping the women with the necessary skills and knowledge to start and manage their own businesses. This will increase their financial abilities to enable them purchase food for their families, educate their children (girl child focus), afford better health, clothing and shelter for their children and reduce poverty and attain improved standards of living. The project is focusing on capacity building of the women who are socially and economically disadvantaged.

Long-Term Impact

The project is a long-term strategic humanitarian response to immediate felt needs of the woman-girl child in the area. The effects will include:- Increase the financial abilities of women, Enhance Women's management and technical abilities in running income generating activities, Advance gender equality, equity and the empowerment of women, ensuring elimination of all kinds of violence against women and children. Over 750 people will be affected directly or indirectly by the project.
