ADWAR has completed the activities of the project “Empowering Women and Supporting Their Resilience during the COVID-19 Pandemic in the West Bank – Palestine” in partnership with the Red Crescent Society for the Gaza Strip and the United Nations Authority for Gender Equality and Empowerment of Women and with funding from the Japanese government. The regional program entitled Managing and Responding to Gender Considerations on the Impact of the COVID-19 Epidemic in the Arab Region: From Emergency Response to Recovery and Resilience.
The project aimed to improve the economic conditions of women and young women affected by the COVID-19 crisis by providing job opportunities in order to contribute to accessing social protection in the West Bank.
The project targeted women and young women from all governorates of the West Bank who have been greatly affected by the Corona virus crisis, especially women who head families and suffer from the experience of divorce, separation, abandonment, or widows and have children, with disabilities, and they do not have a breadwinner or any source of support for them and suffer from Difficult conditions, whether in terms of food, clothing, treatment, and young women who have been dismissed or abandoned from the work sector.
As the project had an impact on the beneficiaries on several aspects, these effects were represented in improving their living, humanitarian, social, economic and political conditions, and enhancing their community participation in general.
