“The recommendation issued by the Gender Equality Council to launch a low-budget program by the Rural Development Agency adjusted to the women”, - the Chair of the GEC, Nino Tsilosani stated at the meeting with the RDA and UN Women representatives, discussing the gender program development.
The project envisages the establishment of greenhouse economies in the pilot municipalities to encourage the local women to become entrepreneurs.
The project aims at the economic strengthening of women as one of the aspects of the economic enhancement of women by the GEC.
The recommendations also envisage the establishment of the network of successful women beneficiaries and their engagement in the programs as mentors, as well as the creation of small-scale programs for women only.
The recommendations have been developed within the GEC thematic inquiry on “Participation of Women in State Economic Programs”.
“We believe that the program adjusted to the needs and capacity of women will facilitate the economic enhancement of the rural women”, - N. Tsilosani noted. The UN Women is the main donor of the program with the co-financing of the state.
