Résumé
A study was conducted to analyse the contribution of the training of Hawassa Women Promotion Technical and Vocational Training College to the gender equity. We looked at the effects of HWPTVTC to women graduated in the community of Hawassa town (Southern Nation Nationalist and People’s Region), Ethiopia. From HWPTVTC 30 women graduates were selected from their work area randomly next 3 key informants were selected from different departments of different organizations of the town. All were interviewed with semi-structure questionnaires and analyzed qualitatively. The study was focusing on the development of women since the College stands for the help of women and giving training for women especially for those women who cannot afford for school and helpless women. As result of the analysis, the majority of women graduates get job in the country after they are graduated from the College, even though it is difficult to find job for graduated people. Some of the women graduated are working in small enterprise for themselves and also some women graduated are working in their own enterprise and investing in the country by using their profession. The livelihood of graduated women is improved compared to the time during the training. The women participate and are involved in many social affairs and become independent in the society, but still there is no equal control and access for resources in their organization compared to men. They make also less decisions and work professionally but also in the household. Based on the conclusion some recommendations are proposed. NGO’s, GO’s, donors and private sectors should increase the number of TVET institutions in the country to help women for their development.
