Empower Women in Construction
Buildher equips disadvantaged women aged 18-35 years from informal settlements with accredited construction skills, increasing employment opportunities and incomes. While promoting gender equality within the industry. Buildher’s model focuses on four pillars: Accredited Construction Skills Training, Life Skills Development, Women & Family Support, Advocacy & Routes to Employment. Buildher’s approach addresses the interrelated socioeconomic barriers keeping women from accessing vocational training opportunities and bridges soft-skill-gaps created by historic inequities to promote professional success and women-friendly workplace and policies.
This is a wonderful project, as the women not only receive professional training, but are also given comprehensive support: in addition to technical competence, mental factors are also taken into account, which are just as important for asserting oneself in male-dominated professions. An important step for equality and strengthening women's rights.WINNER STATEMENT
