The Regional Economic Empowerment of Women Project (REEWP) is a bilateral project managed by Oxfam-Québec and funded by the Canadian Government through the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA).  Its regional office is based in Amman, Jordan. The project aims to contribute to providing an enabling environment for the sustainable economic development of women and economic empowerment opportunities in the region.  At the end of this period, the full participation of women (including young women aged 18 to 35) in the economic development should have increased in the targeted countries: the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, Jordan, Lebanon, and Tunisia.  The duration of the Regional Economic Empowerment of Women Project (REEWP) is four and a half years.    The project is implemented by four key partner-organizations in the MENA region: The Jordanian Hashemite Fund for Human Development (JOHUD) in Jordan; The Collective for Research and Training Development Action (CRTD.A) in Lebanon; The Centre for Arab Women for Training and Research (CAWTAR) in Tunisia, and The Palestinian Businesswomen Association (ASALA) in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
The project aims to reinforce the capacity of these partner-organizations at three levels:  to act on, to influence and to support services for the economic empowerment of women in the realm of their work.   One key strategic element is to foster the maintenance and growth of dialogue among MENA countries as a mean to ensure the economic empowerment of women. By doing this, the REEWP is creating a regional network to exchange knowledge, expertise, methods and tools, and to share priorities for action in terms of policy work, support services, and support of initiatives relating to the economic empowerment of women.   REEWP proposes to do so through a combination of strategies involving advocacy, research and knowledge as well as direct and business development services.
