Amel concludes its seasonal MWDW empowerment program


Amel Association International organized a graduation ceremony ending a training session of the empowerment and protection of migrant women domestic workers (MWDW) and victims of human trafficking program for 2015-2016. The event took place at the association’s premises in the capital’s southern suburb of Shayya7 on March 7 in the presence of a number of representatives of partner civil society organizations. It should be noted that Amel launched the above program back in 2011 in an attempt to combat the widespread phenomenon of discrimination, exploitation, modern-day slavery, as well as all forms of related violence against MWDWs. The initiative has earned the support of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent. During the ceremony, participating women workers expressed their gratitude to Amel for increasing their awareness of their own rights and of how to protect themselves against any abuser.
