Smart centre launches a new project: “Supporters of women’s voices” || Newspapers


Smart centre launched yesterday a project funded by the US Embassy small grants programme entitled “Supporters of Women’s Voices.  The launch included key note addresses by Smart director Randa Yassir, the project director Sylva Akl and the representative of the US Embassy Rebecca A. Haskamp.  Speakers outlined the main objective of the project namely supporting women’s participation in politics and in decision making through boosting their confidence with various training interventions.  The project will be implemented in a number of phases starting with a 6 days training targeting 40 participants and covering techniques for effective campaigning.  This will be followed by the organization of public debates with 500 women in the North, Mount Lebanon and the South.  The last phase of the project seeks to enable participants in the training to take part in a research looking at how political campaigns are run in Lebanon.
