Grant Commitee meeting in Baljuvon
In March, a grant committee meeting was held in Baljuvon to discuss the ideas presented in the framework of the project ‘Training Women in Baljuvon for Public Administration’.
The project is funded by the ‘Good Governance Initiative Fund’, implemented by EFCA-Tajikistan with the financial support of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
Within the framework of the project, courses were organised in the Baljuvon district for 20 highly educated young women. Participants were able to learn skills which are highly applicable for work in the government and took part in trips to Kulob and Qurghonteppa in order to visit organisations and institutions run by women.
At the end of the course a competition was announced for the best project encouraging women to enter government administration. The members of the grant committee included the Chairperson of the Baljuvon Zoirzoda district, Marifat Oymahmad, and representatives of civil society and EFCA-Tajikistan.
