Women success by Women

Despite the progress that the world is experiencing in this twenty-one century ending, women are being left behind and oppressed as low creative.
This conception of facts is put in women from their childhood and sees itself operational in discriminating society.
Therefore, there is great need to make them(women) aware, to make them know who they are, what they are able of, how they should keep up themselves.
Its only when women recognize what they can fight to possess their position and hence put an and to subordinative, oppressive and exploitative conditions they are knowing in their respective societies.

Lack of funds couldnt make us stand still close our hands.
Whilst waiting for your assistance, we set ourselves to work hard during these 4 months.

We have focused our efforts to give to our members the real value of themselves, they are women, sacred carriers of lives but with intellectual ability as of any one else, with physical aptitude like any one else, with free moral and choice like any one else.
The refugee women would be productive every day at home or in a group. After selling some goods from a loan, they will use part of their share of earnings to buy necessary items usually food, clothing, shoes, clean water, health care and renting they own houses.

We meet every Thursday and Saturday for two hours to share experiences and develop the spirit the team and create unity.
