The activities undertaken during the project period will include: 1) TV and Radio roundtables on the importance of women rights protection, 2) Women rights speeches during Friday prayer gatherings about women’s rights, 3) Publishing Booklets containing information about women rights under Islam, international treaties and Afghan laws, and 4)Training workshops on women’s political, economical and civil/social rights.

The implementation strategy includes: capacity building, networking, raising awareness through publications and utilizing traditional networks like mosques as well as media (national and local).

With financial support of UNDEF, DPA is implementing the project in close collaboration with its partners and networks.
