Des serviettes hygiéniques lavables pour toutes ! | Women's World Wide Web

#MenstrualHygieneDay #EndPeriodPoverty A l’occasion de la Journée mondiale de l’hygiène menstruelle, W4 est fier d’annoncer son partenariat avec Fille du Monde sur un formidable projet au Bénin : l’organisation d’ateliers de sensibilisation à l’hygiène menstruelle permettant à de jeunes femmes de confectionner des serviettes périodiques réutilisables. Les ateliers auront lieu dans plusieurs villes du Bénin, dont Cotonou et Parakou. Notre objectif est de lever des fonds tout au long du mois de juin afin de permettre à plus de 650 jeunes filles et femmes au Bénin de bénéficier de ces ateliers de formation et de sensibilisation. Grâce à ce programme, les jeunes filles et femmes bénéficiaires en apprennent davantage sur l’hygiène menstruelle et la façon dont fabriquer des serviettes périodiques réutilisables. De plus, les ateliers sont conçus de manière à ce que les femmes puissent acquérir les connaissances et le savoir-faire nécessaires, pour par la suite les transmettre aux autres filles et femmes de leurs communautés. Le projet vise également à mettre fin à la gêne et au tabou qui persistent autour des règles. Nous vous invitons à en apprendre davantage sur cet incroyable projet et à faire un don dès aujourd’hui ! Soutenir ce projet est bénéfique aux communautés locales à plusieurs niveaux : vous permettez ainsi aux filles et aux femmes d’avoir accès à des produits essentiels pour leur hygiène menstruelle, vous contribuez à l’émancipation économique de ces jeunes femmes (la confection des serviettes périodiques réutilisables représentant pour elles une précieuse source de revenus), vous promouvez des pratiques d’hygiène menstruelle plus durables d’un point de vue environnemental, et vous permettez également à ces jeunes filles de ne pas manquer l’école. Cela fait beaucoup de GAINS !

C’est le BON moment de faire un DON ! Tous les dons à ce projet seront doublés ! LE DÉFI 100 000 000 de jeunes filles dans les pays dits “des Suds” ratent…

Afghan girls make ventilators out of car parts

"Afghanistan's all-girl robotics team has turned its focus on coronavirus patients - by making affordable ventilators out of car parts. {...} Known as the "Afghan Dreamers", the girls come from the western province of Herat, where Afghanistan's first case of Covid-19 was reported. It's the nation's hotspot for the pandemic because of its close proximity to Iran, the region's epicentre of the outbreak.The girls, aged between 14 and 17, have built a prototype using a motor from a used Toyota Corolla and a chain drive from a Honda motorcycle. They say their ventilators will give temporary relief to patients with respiratory difficulty in an emergency when standard ventilators are not available.
"I feel so proud to be part of a team that is trying to do something meaningful to support our doctors and nurses - they are our heroes at this time," says team captain, Somaya Faruqi. {...} With a less than 30% female literacy rate in the country, the teenagers hope their project will inspire others and change the perception of women in the engineering industry. "It [being able to make ventilators] shows the importance of teaching girls at a young age and the role of women as active citizens in our society," says another team member, Elham Mansori, 16." #ICT4D #EQUALS #GenerationEquality #GirlsEducation Equals - The Global Partnership for Gender Equality in the Digital Age

5 Ways To Protect Critical Digital Connectivity During COVID-19

On World Telecommunication & Information Society Day, let's renew our resolve to overcome the global digital divide and the digital gender divide! #EQUALS #DigitalInclusion #DigitalEquality
"COVID-19 has dealt a shock to our world. Large swathes of the global population are living under some restrictions and enforced distancing. We are learning to live differently – to learn, socialize, shop, worship and collaborate differently. And we are doing all of this online. The role of digital connectivity in our lives has grown over recent years, but never have we been so acutely aware of how critically we depend on it. {...} While it is true that many are only just realizing how much we depend on digital connectivity – it is only true for those who are connected to the internet. Currently, this stands at 53% of the world’s population. Many countries are now starting to face their COVID-19 wave without the luxury of the connected information systems that most if not all readers of this article take for granted. Never before will the gap between those who are connected and those who are not be so dramatically – and tragically – felt. This tragedy may prove to play out hardest amongst the 47% of the world’s population that are not connected and do not have access to basic information and opportunities."

With coronavirus increasing demand for connectivity, here's how governments can help, including ensuring access and affordability of digital services.

Most of Italy's doctors and nurses are women. Its official coronavirus response is dominated by men

#DateciVoce #GiveUsVoice "Every evening, when health experts updated anxious Italians in televised briefings about their nation’s devastating coronavirus outbreak, the lineup of authoritative figures included only one woman: the sign-language interpreter. And not a single woman was among the 20-member commission appointed to advise the government on how and when Italy could safely reopen its factories, stores, schools and parks. The omissions are all the more glaring because more than half the country’s doctors and three-quarters of its nurses are women, many on the front lines of the pandemic. Not to mention that the three researchers who isolated the coronavirus in the first days of Italy’s outbreak were women.
Indignation over the gender inequality has now exploded into the open, with some 70 female researchers and scientists signing a petition demanding that the government include women in virus decision-making bodies as a matter of “democracy and civilization.” Backing them is a grass-roots movement on social media dubbed “Give Us Voice” — a riff on the token presence of the female sign-language interpreter at the news conferences.
A motion has also been lodged in the Senate by 16 female lawmakers calling on the government to remedy the imbalance. Dozens of women in Parliament’s lower Chamber of Deputies backed a similar motion, declaring such slogans as “Let’s make ourselves heard.”" #GenerationEquality #WomensRights #GenderEquality

After two months of daily briefings with only male COVID-19 experts, female doctors and scientists in Italy are demanding their voices be heard.

Domestic Abuse in Russia Doubles Amid Virus Lockdown: Official - The Moscow Times

#EndViolenceAgainstWomen #WomensHumanRights
"Russia decriminalized first-time abuse offenses in 2017, a move that lawmakers had been working to overturn with new legislation before the coronavirus pandemic broke out. Russia’s senate speaker has vowed to resume debate of the country’s delayed domestic violence bill as soon as “circumstances permit.” The United Nations warned of a “growing crisis within a crisis” last week, estimating that six months of lockdown could result in 31 million more domestic violence cases worldwide. Another year of strict lockdown could double that number to 61 million, according to the UN Population Fund."

“It’s not an optimistic picture,” human rights commissioner Tatyana Moskalkova said.

As Human Rights Watch recently reported, as a result of the global pandemic “more than 1.5 billion students are out of school. Widespread job and income loss and economic insecurity among families are likely to increase rates of child labor, sexual exploitation, teenage pregnancy, and child marriage.” (https://tinyurl.com/ttuejqb) In Goma, DRC, there has a been a sharp increase in the number of street children. Last Friday, our field team in DR Congo welcomed a group of street children to W4’s center in Goma where the children have been provided with food, shelter and medical care. This little film shows the children singing and dancing with joy as they are welcomed at the Goma center.

Opinion | A Second Covid Crisis Is Coming

"When emergencies strike, vulnerable people suffer most. That almost always means women and girls. Programs that help women and girls need more resources—fast. And everyone—governments, businesses, philanthropies and international agencies—must focus specifically on protecting women against the health, economic and social consequences of Covid-19. This can’t be an afterthought. It must be front and center. Otherwise, women and girls will be dealing with the fallout of the pandemic for years—even decades—to come."

If we don’t act now, women and girls will be suffering from the pandemic’s fallout for decades to come.

Meet Sharon, one of the students in W4’s advanced IT & entrepreneurship training program in Maasailand, Kenya. The young Maasai women who attend W4’s IT training center in Kajiado are out-of-school (owing to a lack of financial means to pursue further study) & unemployed. Many of them have never even touched computers before when they embark on their learning journey at our IT training center. We wish to congratulate our talented, resilient young students! The young women complete an 8-month intensive, advanced IT training program, combined with entrepreneurship training, thanks to which they can acquire skills and qualifications enabling them to obtain safe, formal employment. Equipped with skills & qualifications that can boost their employability, the young women can determine their own futures, and break the cycle of poverty in which their families have been trapped. We’re very PROUD of Sharon and all our students in Kajiado! #ICT4D #GirlsInTech #WomenInTech #EQUALS Find out more about this exciting program & how you can support it/get involved here: https://www.w4.org/en/project/it-training-for-maasai-women/
