Giving voice to the women from rural Macedonia

National Council for Gender Equality during the period September 2014 - May 2015 has been implementing activities in the frame of the project "Giving voice to the women from rural Macedonia", financially supported by the International Council of Women. The activities which were implemented in three rural communities: Lozovo, Studenichani and Centar Zhupa, had the purpose of improving the quality of life of women and girls, as well as improving the status of women and promoting equal opportunities.

In the framework of the project workshops were realized for strengthening of women, and the women had the possibilities to identify their needs and problems and on the basis of the identified priorities to define local actions. The local actions, which were actions for advocacy, were implemented by the women in the three communities. They had meetings with the local authorities in order to present their needs and problems and to give initiatives for their solution.

As a result of the project the cooperation between women's organizations and the local authorities was improved and future steps for mutual activities were defined with the purpose of resolving the problems and improving the quality of life in the communities.
