Skilled Young Palestine (SYP)
recently reiterated by our Belgian Minister of Development Cooperation, Meryame
Kitir, “Women and girls are drivers of change for development, and they
should be encouraged in their leadership aspirations.”
Last year has been incredibly difficult for everyone. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected health, economies, labour markets, and worldwide and almost every aspect of our lives. For women, the pandemic has been particularly challenging. Women were at the forefront of the pandemic response. However, despite COVID-19’s massive disruption to all spheres of lives, the pandemic has also shed light on an important opening to rethink women’s roles as role models in their community.
Enabel joined the global celebration of International Women's Day with the theme “Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world” and the tremendous efforts by women and girls in shaping a more equal future and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. Team Belgium (Enabel Palestine and the Consulate-General of Belgium in Jerusalem) took this opportunity to put inspirational women and their male allies in the spotlight and share their story.
