Développement et Coopération EUROP AID

Titre : Promoting land and women rights in Red Sea State, Eastern Sudan

Pays : Sudan

Durée : 2005- 2007

Partenaires : Abuhadia Association for Women and Community Development

Contexte
The Abuhadia Association engages in conflict resolution and addresses women’s rights in Red Sea State, eastern Sudan. Competition over scarce resources and limited fertile land sometimes leads to conflicts that hamper development. Women have been particularly deprived from claiming their individual rights and are often denied access to education on economic or cultural grounds. Female circumcision is still widely practiced in Sudan, despite being repeatedly refuted by religious leaders. This is often due to false religious beliefs or a lack of knowledge about the adverse health consequences of this practice.

Addressing basic needs and rights in the Red Sea State • Resolving tribal land disputes to facilitate the use of abandoned land in Red Sea State • Contributing to combat female genital circumcision in Red Sea State at community and government level • Promoting the rights of women and children to acquire proper education
