That's All

Women Participation and Civic Education

It is 1 a year project started February 2016 and will end January 2017. This project aims at tackling a myriad of obstacles encountered by Women candidates during 2005 parliamentary and 2012 local council elections such as: Not having resources to campaign, men not accepting women candidacy, and women being new to political arena and clan role. Women also mistrust politics, their being disorganized, being discriminated against and their political role not recognized by political parties. To improve women political participation in Somaliland there is need for a comprehensive awareness raising, voter and civic education. To achieve this, the project shall give great focus on civic and voter education to rural and grass root women while building and improving women candidates potentially in campaign for confidence to equally compete with men during elections.
