Some 35 women participated in the said workshop which was held at "Safadi Center for Agricultural Development" in Deir Dloum - Akkar, under the supervision of the expert in local development and director of the social development sector in the foundation, Samira Baghdadi, and the social expert and director of projects in the sector, Samar Bulos. The project manager, Ghassan Sroor, explained at the beginning of the workshop the social significance of this type of training, especially in terms of motivating women to participate in local and development projects. The participants then discussed women’s concerns, ways to overcome them, how to set goals and priorities and what are the best methods to achieve them. The workshop also discussed ways to take advantage of available community resources that would help in achieving those priorities, in addition to issues of time management.
