Club schools for women in rural communities.
Explain your idea in details:
In my community to talk about violence is a taboo topic that is rarely discussed, even if many young children are being exposed to it on a regular basis. A lot of girls/women are violated because of their backgrounds, because of culture. And they are not afforded the opportunity to speak out. Women and girls need to be empowered in order to reach their highest potential. The club schools for women in rural communities is an idea which is about to create a strong support system/a platform(powerful support group) in my community that will help women/girls to harness their talents and strive for their goals. It is about to inspire and encourage them to believe in themselves. so that they will be capable to develop their families and communities.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
My idea has an impact on sustainable development in that way that is going to empower women and girls in rural communities. so it will help to make sure that women and girls have equal rights and opportunity, and be able to live free of violence and discrimination but also integral to all dimensions of inclusive and sustainable development. the 5th sustainable development goal requires urgent actions to eliminate root causes of discrimination that still curtail women's rights in private and public spheres. so i will help in poverty's eradication and promote protection of women from domestic violence. women do the vast majority of the unpaid work,including child care, cooking, cleaning and farming, this unpaid work is essential for house holds and economies to function, but it is also valued less than paid work. so My idea is coming to address key challenges such as domestic violence, inequality and poverty against women in empowering them.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
My idea is for mindset of my community on how they see or view the gender equality. so the value of this idea, it is new. so it will be with strong impact in rural communities. financing source is from every one who want to contribute in protecting women from violence, poverty and inequality. it will also comes from my association APECE(Association pour la Promotion Educative et la Création de l'Emploi ,means the association which promotes quality education and job creation). so my collaborators are: government; non government organization; partners and public institutions.
