The project aims at improving the rural women access to justice through women rights and legal awareness with specific focus on community level. Officially started on 1 September 2011, it has identified 50 villages where project activities are taking place, including the establishment of 50 REFLECT circles. Each circle is established in any of the house in the village and approximately 20-25 women from village attend the circles. Each circle is equipped with learning and writing materials and is attended by 20-25 women. The circle acts as a safe place for women to self help to needy women with the help of 50 facilitators. The project also selected 60 paralegals (50 women and 10 men), who received training through the project and are addressing issues of violence against women on a volunteer basis. The Paralegals were also provided with necessary training handouts, books and self-learning material on women’s rights and elimination of violence against women. Through the project, the first report on the implementation of the National Action Plan on Women of Afghanistan was also finalized, and served as a tool for advocacy on women’s rights at the national level. read more close
