Education, Literacy and Autonomy for Women
A project under the aegis of Swissaidthat strives to strengthen the social and economic position of women. Illiteracy is one of the main reasons for poverty and denies a large proportion of women in Guinea-Bissau access to the labor market and to credits and excludes them from political participation. This Swissaid project, which is run in partnership with local women's groups and is state-recognized, makes an important contribution to improving this situation.
A project under the aegis of Plan International Schweiz.
The aim of this project is to break down gender roles and improve the long-term prospects of girls and their families by motivating and promoting young women to pursue training in STEM professions (science, technology, engineering, mathematics).
