The Role of Women & Women Empowerment
At the core of Zamzam Foundation’s humanitarian and development work is the services we provide to women and children. During emergencies, women-headed families and children are among the most vulnerable groups. Women play leadership roles in the education and health programs of the Zamzam Foundation and ratio is progressively increasing.
The Somali women have played a major role in the peacebuilding and family welfare. During the harsh conditions of famine and civil strives, we believe it was mainly the resiliency, hard-work and the strengths of Somali women that survived millions in Somalia. At Zamzam Foundation, we empower women with education, skills training and income generation programs. We recognize the leading role of women in the family and in the Somali society as pioneers of peace and stability
