Empowerment of Women- RFPD initiative in Switzerland

Empowerment of Women (EoW) was founded as the Swiss RFPD Initiative in Zurich in April this year. In October, the first national RFPD-Panel was held in Bern. About 30 participants discussed how Rotary in Switzerland interprets the mission to empower women and how this could be accomplished. They decided to promote projects that would be carried by strong and motivated members of the local community. EoW therefore focused on the support of two projects; a microcredit initiative for women in Palestine (www.asala-pal.com) and a project on secondary education for HIV/AIDS-orphans in the Nyanza province in Kenya (www.tac-africa.org).
