MEET FYF'S FEMALE LEADERS
Continuing with FYF's social media series, "Meet our Female Leaders," in August we met members of our protection, justice, and livelihoods teams.
"I am very passionate about my work because we, as FYF, provide Yezidi and other minority women with holistic support and opportunities to improve their income generation capacities, enhance their chances for future employment, build support networks, and find their inner strength." - Khalidah, Livelihoods Manager, read more.
“I joined the Free Yezidi Foundation because it supports women and encourages them to work in a society that continues to discriminate against women in all spheres/fields." - Sonia, Legal Protection Officer, read more.
"Being a part of a women-led organization empowers me to push boundaries and advocate for gender equality. My work is fuelled by the resilience and strength of survivors, as I strive to create a world free from violence and discrimination.” - Maysa, Protection Officer, read more.
"As a female and a Yezidi in Iraq, we have very limited access to job opportunities due to discrimination against our community and our gender. At FYF, I was given a chance to lead their investigation work. FYF provided me with intense training and support over the past four years to empower me to improve myself personally and professionally." - Waheeda, Justice Manager, read more.
Meet more of our incredible female leaders here.
Thank you all, as always, for your steadfast support of FYF and the Yezidi community.
