House of Initiatives by and for Syrian Women in Reyhanli

Grantee: Mandat International

The project aims to create a capacity building programme for approximately one hundred Syrian women currently refugees in Turkey, so as to increase their opportunity to fully participate in the democratic, economic and reconstruction processes during the post-conflict period. This will be implemented as an extension and development of the initial Zeytuna Project financed by UNDEF. The activities under this second phase will bring together in one house some of the projects developed by the women during the initial phase The centre will help the participants to ensure the sustainability of their projects by providing a common area where they will be able to share a number of resources (human, material and financial) both empowering them as well as inspiring other Syrian women to conduct similar spin-off projects.
