Daleel Tadamon believes in empowering women economically as a stepping stone to achieving gender equality.
Supporting women and building their capacities enable them to enter the job market and become independent.
Yet the aim of Daleel Tadamon is not only to help women gain access to productive resources but to control and own the means of production.
Consequently, women will have meaningful participation in the decision-making and will cooperatively work, generate returns, and distribute them equally between them.
Empowering Women in Business
CURRENT SITUATION & CHALLENGES
Women mostly carry
unpaid and undervalued work
Women are paid less than men in the formal sector and experience barriers in almost every aspect of work
Jobs in the current labor market are mostly undemocratic and based on unfair wage relations and subordination
A big number of women are dependent economically on a family member, putting them at higher risk of abuse and restricting their freedom
The project aimed at providing women with all the technical skills and know-how to become part of a solidarity initiative.
After several generic workshops, the women acquired basic knowledge of how solidarity enterprises and cooperatives work and the challenges they face.
After that, women were divided into two groups based on their interests.
Some decided to take part in a soap-making solidarity business and were trained on producing soaps. Others preferred to join a service solidarity business and provide their communities with different services such as households support and child and elderly care.
