About the Project

Taking into consideration gender inequalities, as well as global tendencies in the empowerment of low-skilled women, the UPCOMING WOMEN project has a strategic interest in targeting low skilled women and those facing precarious and vulnerable situations, such as migrants, survivors of gender-based discrimination and violence, survivors of human trafficking, people from rural areas. By empowering these women, the UPCOMING WOMEN project will also address the need to equally provide the same space for women to thrive and live fulfilling lives and equally contribute toward the economic and social development of their communities.

One of the ways of empowering women is through upskilling them in different areas to promote and facilitate their social and labor inclusion.

Objectives are:

  • To empower and upskill low skilled women and in situations of vulnerability for they to become more globally competent and therefore to boost their social and labor inclusion.
  • To upskill professionals by equipping them with globally competent and gender- based digital tools and mentoring methodologies to improve their work with low skilled women and in situations of vulnerability and better support them.
  • To raise awareness about gender inequalities and advance gender equality
