Economical Empowerment of women through education
Date du début: 1 sept. 2014,
Date de fin: 31 août 2017
The economic situation since the crisis of 2008 has been at the roots of a huge increase in the unemployment figures across Europe. No country has been spared and we know that the longer people are unemployed, the more difficult it becomes for them to re-integrate “active life” Many grassroots “social educators” feel simply out-of-their-depth faced with the scale of the problem in their communities. Many suffer from burn-out as a result. Even those who have ideas of what could be offered have no idea what funding is available for such work or how to look for it so many ideas are not initiated – or are not sustainable for developing within a long-term perspective.
This project aims to tackle the efficiency of training and employment initiatives for unemployed women. Secondly, to explore professional training and support gaps for the facilitators and educators involved in this field of work and to develop responses at both regional and European-levels.
There are 6 participating countries in the project with different backgrounds and experience of the problem. Each organization will bring specific expertise that complements each other. There will be two levels of target groups. Adult Educators who we will work with directly, that will attend the workshops and the method improving work. The other target group is the women we are addressing that will benefit indirectly by the project in the long run.
Our activities will include: launching of networks on regional levels: "Exploring the field, Partnership Kick-off meeting, "Establishing Cooperation Strategies & Identifying Best Practices", European-level Event: "Exchanging Best Practices & Planning New Developments", "Female unemployment: a state of the art", Time for Action, European-level Event: "Evaluation of Phase", Conclusion of the Action Research, Follow-Up and Focus on Training Module Development.
Through these events we will both have a survey of methods and examination of what results have been achieved through current practices, to reflect over our own methods, identifying some concrete examples of good practice and methods of working. From this survey of needs and practise the project will develop some ideas of what “new aspects” of this work could be developed in terms of cooperation between organizations and exchange of practices. Developing methods to be practised on national level, shared and defined in the transnational events and implemented on regional level for the benefit of the target group.
We expect the adult educators to be more proactive and independent, to have a european vision on the topic, and to have developed a set of competences that will increase the quality of their job. One of the impacts will also be a greater ability in avoiding burn-out for a more continuous and secure job. They will gain a greater cultural competence in order to enhance understanding, build bridges and create a safe environment in the workplace. The participants in the project will be able to bring their knowledge to the organization to quality secure and help develop the whole organization. We will develop strong networks with local organisations and services designed for unemployed female and so the whole community can benefit from it. The desired impact on local and regional level is that more women should be able to integrate into society, gain self-esteem and a job to break their isolation from society. This will be a benefit for both the women and the sociality.
