Titre : AMAL supports women’s transformative leadership in Morocco, Tunisia, Yemen and the Occupied Palestinian Territories

Pays/Région : Morocco, Tunisia, Yemen and the Occupied Palestinian Territories

Durée : 2012 – 2015

Descriptif
AMAL - which means hope in Arabic - supports women’s transformative leadership in Morocco, Tunisia, Yemen and the Occupied Palestinian Territories. The programme works through partner organisations to enable women from poor communities to strengthen their confidence, knowledge of their rights and their campaigning and advocacy skills. The aim is for these women to become leaders who can work with their communities reclaim their right to political and civic participation and achieve long lasting positive change.

Key activities
The AMAL Innovation Fund supports emerging women’s rights and youth organisations to implement small innovative projects that advocate women’s participation and provide opportunities for linking, learning and networking.
The AMAL research project aims to provide an in depth analysis of the barriers to women’s civic and political participation in poor and marginalized areas of the programme countries, and to identify potential opportunities for breakthrough. The research will be used for lobbying, advocacy and media work to raise the voices of women nationally, regionally and globally.

Objectives
By the end of the programme, women and girls will know their rights and be able to exercise leadership at all levels : household, community, national and regional, thus gaining power over their lives.
Women’s organisations and their allies will have a collective voice on women’s rights and be able to influence policies. Decision-makers and opinion formers will be more supportive of women’s rights, aware of the needs of different women, including the marginalized, and reflect those in their positions. Finally, Oxfam and its partners will have stronger approaches to support women’s leadership in the region and globally

Partenaire(s) : The programme implemented by Oxfam and funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA), it has an estimated 43,210 direct beneficiaries and 132,000 indirect beneficiaries.
