We Women Have Power

We Women Have Power - cover

Since 2013, the UN Women Country Office in Georgia has been working on strengthening the capabilities and skills of women living in rural areas with the support of social mobilization. Community training sessions on this topic help them to continually participate in how local priorities and budgeting are determined.

Through this initiative, women in different parts of Georgia now engage in volunteer activism, create self-help groups, conduct needs studies and present the results to their local self-governments in round-table meetings - and then they take care of solving these problems.

This publication is about their accomplishments - about the tangible and impressive changes that they have made to improve daily life in villages in Kvemo Kartli, Kakheti and Samtskhe-Javakheti, bringing new light and hope to their communities.

The publication was prepared in the framework of the project “Women’s Economic Empowerment in the South Caucasus”, funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and the Austrian Development Cooperation (ADC).
