STRENGTHENING GENDER BALANCE IN VOCATIONAL SECONDARY SCHOOLS FOR YOUNG GIRLS WHEN CHOOSING A FUTURE PROFESSION, THROUGH EDUCATION
The goal of the project strengthening gender balance in vocational secondary schools for young girls and boys when choosing a future profession through education is to improve the local community support to gender equality through education by generating knowledge, diffusing experiences and providing learning opportunities on how the promotion of gender equality can occur through dialogue and capacity development in development cooperation in the education sector.
The project will take place both in schools and through community‐based training and outreach in order to reach out to a wider audience. In regards to the region, the pilot project will take place in three different municipalities so different backgrounds are incorporated in the project activities as well as results; those are the Municipality of Cair, Karposh and Centar by community public awareness work.
Through these communities and via empowerment, the project will tackle a process of public awareness and deconstruction that enables one to acquire the ability to act on one’s own life and on one’s environment, community, or society; therefore providing a safe and inclusive learning environment. The project will last 12 months.
