The project, which was carried out for women producers, women entrepreneurs affected by the earthquake, aims to contribute to the inclusion of women directly affected by earthquakes in the production process with training and mentoring support and to support social empowerment.
My NFA can follow this example and create a similar project.
Millions of women and children were affected by the earthquake that occurred on February 6, 2023 in southeastern Turkey.
"Kagider" is a Turkish women's NGO working to support women's entrepreneurship. During the session, they talked about how they supported women after the devastating earthquake in Turkey. Women lost their homes and property and were left in poverty. They supported small women's initiatives, collaborated with a digital platform and tried to sell products produced by women. In this way, they were able to stand on their feet and contribute to the economy.
It is a model for empowering women; many NFAs can collaborate with other sectors to support women entrepreneurs.

UN Women supports such projects.
