BRIEF PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Through ACT Institutional grant, FemPlatz will inform both the male and female citizens about their work and have them involved in the discussions on gender equality, in order to be able to raise new issues with them and motivate them for greater engagement in the protection and promotion of gender equality in the community. They will discuss the position of women in socio-political life and proposals for improving the quality of life and respect for women’s rights in Serbia today. Also, they will publish texts and an electronic magazine on gender equality. Further on, this grant will enable them to continue monitoring the exercise of women’s rights in Serbia and advocate policies and practices which will ensure equality, empowerment and respect of the rights of girls and women. Inclusion of women from various social groups is necessary for the decision-making within this organization and this is what they wish to achieve through this project. FemPlatz is an organization that grounds its work on partnerships with other associations and through this grant, they intend to reinforce this cooperation, but also to empower their team through mentoring support that will be provided.
