Supporting Economic Prosperity for Women and Internally Displaced Persons in Ukraine (SEW Ukraine)

Ukraine

Project Details

Project Overview

Women in Ukraine face gender-based discrimination, primarily as a result of deeply rooted cultural norms and practices. Gender-based discrimination often takes patriarchal views on the role of women and men in society and widespread gender-based violence. Women, especially girls, were severely impacted by the overall political instability and an armed conflict in 2013.

Supporting women through employment and entrepreneurship will help in their economic empowerment and overall well-being. Opportunities in the garment industry are the step forward. The SEW Ukraine project aims to foster economic prosperity for 2,200 vulnerable women, including Internally Displaced Person (IDPs) living in the Kyiv, Kharkiv, and Dnipropetrovsk oblasts of Ukraine.

The project will support women beneficiaries by giving access to employment, vocational training, workplace integration training, and ancillary services such as shared childcare facilities.

The project will support women with higher skills to establish new micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs). In addition, women who own or manage MSMEs (existing and start-ups) will engage in customized capacity-building support. The training includes business management, access to loans for increased competitiveness, and the formation of co-operatives to advance sustainable, profitable, and gender-equitable businesses.
