Women Supporting Women Program - Developing Women’s Coalitions
As part of the women supporting women program, Dalia Association staff organized an initial workshop with the members of the women’s funds in Ramallah, Jenin, and Salfeet. The coalition facilitator worked with the participants to identify their priority issues. Issues to be addressed by these women coalitions include the use of illegal drugs by the youth in the Jenin district, the widespread addiction to smoking cigarettes and nargila in the Salfeet district, and the lack of equal participation by women in local governance in the Ramallah district. The women’s coalitions will continue to develop these key issues and work to create a comprehensive advocacy campaign to raise awareness and seek change.
