This project aims to advocate gender equality issues on local and national level - to eliminate gender discrimination at the workplace and ensure equal pay, to create safe and healthy working conditions.

More specifically, the project:
- Trains trainers and representatives of different organisations on gender and women’s labour rights to ensure wider awareness and better policies.
- Develops a toolkit for advocacy on labour and women’s rights.
- Organises awareness-raising campaign to influence policies in favor of inclusive social and labor rights
- Issues sub-grants to local groups working with local communities on labor/women’s rights.
