Project Description

Gender awarenessPlace: Merauke

Year: 2008

In the villages Urumb, Waninggap and Matara a NGO called Yasanto gave a training on Gender and Economics. 120 people participated in the training. Women play an important role in the financial aspects of the household. They are mostly responsible for keeping an eye on the family budget, health care and education for the children. Unfortunately, their role is often not acknowledged or valued and the relationships between men and women are unequal. Yasanto gives this training to make the people aware of this fact. To greater the impact both woman and man participated.
