About the project
The project "Gap's New Faces Women" aims to increase awareness upon the women's low rate of employment. The reality of women’s unequal representation in the workforce, but also in other areas of activity is reflected in the reports provided by the United Nations Programme.  For example, women’s ratio for non-agricultural employment in Sanli Urfa is 3.7%. This ratio equals to 20% throughout Turkey and reaches 53% in Bulgaria- a EU member state. Women’s underrepresentation in the workforce represents a major problem both at individual and national level. In this sense, the participants will be encouraged to identify solutions by using the instruments provided by this project: “GAP’s New Face-Women”, which will continue with “GAP-Global Active Platform”.  GAP-Global Active Platform, conducted by an informal group of young people from Sanli Urfa, which will set a network, destined to work internationally. The project will encompass the objectives of “YIA Action 4.3”, gathering 20 young people from 9 different countries, taking place on 5-11 May 2014. The results of this project will be shared with decision-makers. In the meantime, the GAP Network will work on strengthening women’s employment throughout EU.
