Women play a key role in environment protection

June 6, 2016 - 11:13

We feel that women have a very important role in terms of improving living conditions of their societies, particularly pertaining to environmental standards. They play an important role not only in educating and upbringing the future generation with necessary awareness of environmental issues but also in changing the current lifestyle and practices. We have started a campaign working with local women to establish micro-credit funds with helping and working with women to empower these women and training them on environmental issues and production of local handicrafts which would be a means to support them and lessen some of the pressure that they have in agriculture sector. We also have another project dealing with the training and empowerment of farmers in general and a participatory method to enable them to increase the efficiency of their agriculture but also decrease the amount of water that is being consumed in this sector.
