Training 20 Women for Net Mending, Creating Livelihood and Improving Incomes

Description

Somalia's vast coastline holds the potential to revitalize its economy through a sustainable Blue Economy. However, skills gaps and gender inequality are hindering progress. This project tackles these challenges head-on by training 20 women from coastal communities in the essential skills of net mending and making. These vital fishing tools are costly to replace, and repairs are currently time-consuming for male fisherfolk. By equipping women with these skills, the project promotes economic empowerment and livelihood security. This innovative approach also challenges traditional gender roles, creating new opportunities for women in the maritime sector and contributing to a stronger and more inclusive Somali economy.
