ABOUT THE PROJECT
The project’s primary goal is to foster the reduction of the disparity between men and women in professional sectors. Through the project, Youth Workers will have the opportunity to enhance their awareness and competencies in recognizing and addressing gender inequalities, and they could share their skills with women and people of their communities. They will also acquire skills related to female entrepreneurship, and this will be useful for doing some sessions of job shadowing in their communities.

 

By sharing this kind of acquired knowledge with the people in their local communities, these Youth Workers can actively contribute to reducing the gender gap and improving the prospects of women and young girls in their regions.

The aims of the project encompass enhancing understanding of discrimination against women within the labor market, increasing consciousness about the real experiences of women entrepreneurs, facilitating networking opportunities for women and promoting comprehension of women’s empowerment.

OBJECTIVES OF THE PROJECT
  • Advocating for policy changes that promote gender equality in the workplace and business environment.
  • Conducting research to identify barriers and opportunities for women’s empowerment in various sectors.
  • Engaging men as allies in promoting gender equality and challenging traditional gender roles.
  • Celebrating and showcasing success stories of women leaders and entrepreneurs to inspire others and challenge stereotypes.
  • Creating inclusive and accessible spaces for dialogue and collaboration among participants to address systemic issues related to gender empowerment.
  • Developing innovative solutions and initiatives to address the connection of gender with other forms of discrimination such as race, ethnicity, class, and disability.
  • Empowering women to become agents of change in their communities through education, leadership development, and advocacy training.

ABOUT KALAMATA
Kalamata (Greek: Καλαμάτα Kalamáta, formerly Καλάμαι Kalámai) is the most populous city of the Peloponnese region in Southern Greece. The capital and chief port of the Messenia regional unit, it lies along the Nedon River at the head of the Messenian Gulf.

The history of Kalamata begins with Homer, who mentions Pharai, an ancient city built more or less where the castle of the town stands today.

Kalamata is renowned as the land of the Kalamatianos dance and the silk kerchief; of succulent, dark “Kalamata olives”; and of honey-eyed figs and the honey-covered sesame sweet called pasteli. The city can be reached from other Greek cities by bus. It has an international airport and an important harbor. Ferries are available during the summer to places such as the Greek islands of Kythira and Crete.
