If you want to stand up for Women’s rights, volunteer on women empowerment in Ethiopia with Iko Poran!
Volunteer on women’s empowerment in Ethiopia with Iko Poran! You will be teaching life-skills and English to the hostel female students, to allow for them to grow personally and professionally. You will make it easier for the young women to access education, and help improving their future emplyoment opportunities.
With this volunteer placement, you will be working in the fields of awareness, counseling and empowerment of the young female students. With your volunteer work you will also help to provide sustainable development opportunities to the hostel female students, who consequently will pass what they learned to their colleagues, friends, mothers, grandmothers and other female family members – through education and motivation.
There are regular rallies and marches to help raise awareness among women about their rights & justice. Seminars are organized to raise voices against domestic violence, eve-teasing (cat-calling) & harassment. Counseling surveys can be done to serve the purpose of the programs. There are regular classes to educate these women to make them self-independent. In Ethiopia most of the women bear violence and harassment because of dependence on their husbands and fear for their families. So becoming self-dependent is the first step to stop all violence and harassment.
This is a fantastic opportunity to work alongside strong and effective women, helping in the process of improving the social position of the women and raising awareness of the importance of feminism in a country where many women are still very much treated as inferior. During your stay, you will get to explore this beautiful country and the Ethiopia way of life. This is your chance to make an impact in someone’s life. This project is perfect for anyone who believes in equality.
