HER PERSPECTIVE “Empowering internally displaced young women to participate in peacebuilding in Ukraine”
“Institute for Peace and Common Ground” in cooperation with the Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict and UN Women in Ukraine, with the support of the United Nations Women’s Peace and Humanitarian Fund (WPHF), is implementing the project “Empowering Internally Displaced Young Women in Ukraine to Participate in Peacebuilding” (“Her Perspective”).
The project aims to promote social cohesion between internally displaced young women and host communities in 5 regions of Ukraine and build women’s capacity to participate in political processes aimed at reconciliation and reconstruction.
The project will support young women and girls who are internally displaced and teach them tools that will make each of their stories visible and their voices heard.
The practical experience gained is an important driver of society’s development. When there is an opportunity to comprehend it through the support of oneself and others, it becomes the key factor that strengthens the social fabric and restores connections within the country.
