Standing up for for rights of women in Somaliland
News from the Field, 24 February 2011
Somalia is one of the world’s most challenging environments in which NGOs can operate. A new project funded by UNDEF in Somaliland works to raise women’s awareness of their rights and how to exercise them. Implemented by the local Women’s Integrated Network, the initiative develops the capacity of a core group of young professional women to train, support and assist women working in markets and shepherding. It works through consultation sessions such as this one at Hargeisa market.
