Business development in rural area - “Empower the women - empower the world”


Within the implementation of “Livestock and Pasture Development Project” second phase, 22 women groups were established in Dangara, Vose, Hamadoni, and Farkhor districts. Mainly talented women and women belonging to poor households have been involved in working activities. In particular, 11 groups for cultivating and processing of hips, 10 women groups for keeping of milking cows and one group for processing and packaging of fruit and vegetables are organized. According to the working plan, these groups will be provided with dog rose hips plants and milking cow by the Project.

Supporting of rural women and provision of working places is one of the key targets of the Government of the Republic of Tajikistan. It should be noted that during the implementation of first phase of the Project, the rural women were provided with working places and most of them are still carrying out their activities up to now in a sustainable manner. It is planned to support and empower rural women in other areas of the project.
