Empowering Disadvantaged Women via Distance Education for a Sustainable Development Project

Project Duration: 2022-2024

In the global agenda, women are regarded as the key driver for economic empowerment and employment. Gender equality (GE) is at the centre of EU values and is supported within the legal and political framework.
Recent research and statistics show that the integration of women, with fewer opportunities, in the Covid-19 process has slowed down in most European countries. This fact needs to be addressed and gives an opportunity to rethink strategy, be successful and find new ways.

The project aims to provide special learning opportunities to low-skilled adults and women, to encourage women to education by removing the space and time limits, and by increasing women’s economic empowerment/basic skills and competencies through distance education. In particular, our project focuses on housewives, immigrant or refugee women with multiple disabilities who want to be educated but can’t. They are responsible for housework, sick and elderly care and at the same time out of the education system and cannot work.

Through this innovative method, and continuously renewed open access online courses, we will increase the employability of the target group. This will provide important results for individuals, families, communities, and society.

Objectives
· To create an e-learning platform that can be integrated into the systems of institutions, that will reduce women’s poverty and are based on lifelong learning.
· To certify the compulsory domestic work done by women, to turn this disadvantaged situation into an advantage for them.
· To contribute to increasing the employment of disadvantaged groups through education.
· To provide easy access to education services with distance education modules for women who cannot attend face-to-face courses and create certified programs.
· To empower women in careers, entrepreneurship, digital skills, and financial literacy through education and ensure their participation in social and economic life.
· To create a strong social education network for women.
· To encourage women to develop themselves by providing professional and personal development trainings.
