”Munca are genul feminin”
Period of implementation: October 2010 – January 2013
“Munca are genul feminin” (Work is feminine) was one of the most cherished projects of our team. It was dedicated to women who wish to achieve a new status, have a chance to get a job, regain their dignity and have a new vision for life.
It was an innovative project designed to help women in search for a job to get the utmost of their skills. We did this by placing the offered services as close as possible to its beneficiaries physically - through events organized in the territory, directly in villages – and in meeting their specific needs.
