Confidence for change
Explain your idea in details:
Confidence for change is a way to give women all the keys to be self-confident and take control of their life to change their future. All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights that is the reason why this concept considers the woman as an individual with her own needs without any influence or pressure because they are enough and don't need people to think or act for them. In a cozy place, a group of women will be invited to reveal themselves and share their experience: introduce themselves, react on various subjects and train critically, to have objectives and reach them, to manage a situation or a budget. All of these activities will help them to be independent and discover who they are and what they want.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
I target married and unmarried women because they are heavily influence by their male counterpart. Why women? because they are the centerpiece of our society. We are more than men so if all women become more confident to use their voices and independent let's imagine what could happen in terms of gender equality, education, financial independence, entrepreneurship, high ranking positions, poverty, malnutrition, economic impact,...when women unite considerable progress is made; the best example is their key role during the French revolution. The trend can be reversed if we join forces, let do it together.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
We need a room where women feel comfortable to talk: some sofas, microphones, overhead projector, televisions, blackboard, radio, and 2 life coach. A weekly meeting will be put place to discuss plans and goal and new ideas for improvements.
My name is Fanta Sylla. I was born in Brussels in 1989 and I studied Communication- Journalism & Digital Marketing. As many black people in Belgium, I didnt find a job because of the color of my skin, because of my name or maybe just because that I am a girl. Womens rights still need to be improve even in developed countries. I didnt find a job but actually I found something more interesting through ONE as a volunteer. ONE is a non-governmental organization which fights against extreme poverty and preventable diseases in Africa. We also run campaigns for gender equality and girls education. Help people and take time for them is something that I always dreamed about and having this opportunity is fulfilling because I feel that I am really useful. My parents came from Guinea so I know how women are treated in this country. Everyday, women and girls need to fight for their freedom, they fight to go to school, they fight because they want to work, they fight to be respected. Because they rights are violated and because I know what it is to be a victim of injustice, I want to stand up for them and help them to find their way to be independent.
