MOSA implements "Shariki" project in Khenshara to strengthen women's public participation

23-10-2013

The Ministry of Social Affairs (MOSA) implemented earlier this week its "Shariki" project in Khenshara in collaboration wit the Municipality as well as the Lions' Club of Ain Saadeh and as part of the broader project entitled “Promote Women's Participation in Governance and Development” which is funded by the Italian embassy.
The project seeks to strengthen the role of women in public life whilst recognising women's skills and capacities, boosting their full confidence to build their talents, encourage them to develop and contribute to gender equality, develop their talents and capacities to become independent in managing their affairs and strengthen their political participation beginning with women’s participation in local governance and subsequently strengthen women's participation in parliamentary elections as well as in holding executive positions.
The activity implemented in Khenshara extended over three days and included a specialised exhibition which hosted 12 kiosks belonging to various associations and banks. It also included raising awareness activities through holding seminars and meetings on the importance of women's participation in public life.  The event also included discussion seminars with Ghassan Moukhaiber and Hayat Areslan and health awareness session and early breast cancer detection tests for 50 women and diabetes tests for 60 individuals and the running of lectures on health nutrition organised in collaboration with the Lions' club.
