  • Education and training: promote access to education, vocational training, and communication and information technologies as basic requirements to obtain employment and to durably improve women’s social and economic situation.
  • Leadership and decision-making: strengthen the self-confidence, the capacity for expression and for action of women and girls as key success factors and means to promote gender equality.
  • Health and social protection: secure access to healthcare and social protection as a crucial prerequisite to autonomy.
