Campaign Status

Ongoing Offline: The campaign is currently ongoing offline and, thus still in the process of collecting funds. 


Summary

The campaign aims to establish a center in the Laksar district of the western state of Nouakchott, Mauritania, to provide support for women affected by violence, family disintegration, and school dropout.

Challenge

Ignorance, poverty, and unemployment serve as fundamental factors making women vulnerable to exploitation, a circumstance that individuals exploit, subjecting them to violence. Conversely, an educated woman with a profession and financial independence builds a robust shield, allowing her to live with dignity and security. This empowerment enables her to fulfill her role towards her family and society more effectively.


Solution

Al Salam Organization for Health, Maternal, and Child Rights aims to establish a center in the Laksar district of the western state of Nouakchott, Mauritania, to provide support for women affected by violence, family disintegration, and school dropout.

Under this initiative, women will undergo training in three specialized fields: tailoring, secretarial and management, and cooking and desserts. Additionally, financial assistance will be provided to enable them to initiate their own projects within the labor market.

Each specialization group will be formed for a duration of three months, with each group comprising 10 women. This implies that a total of 30 women will be formed every three months. Over a span of two years, the project aims to benefit 240 women, contributing to their empowerment and socioeconomic well-being.


The initiative involves the establishment of an integrated center comprising three sections, each accommodating ten women in specialties such as sewing, hotel services, cooking, secretarial work, and design. Each course, lasting three months, involves training 30 women who also receive small sums of money for transportation during the program. After completion, graduates have access to financial loans to kickstart their projects, resulting in positive impacts on their living conditions.


Operating five days a week, the center ensures that each group receives three classes per week. Beyond vocational training, the center is open to additional support avenues, including supervision, health awareness, and legal courses for both women and community-minded young men and women.
