Ten projects are taking place across NI & Border Counties as part an EU-funded project supporting women to address local issues
Each Chapter is developing their own unique Community Project based on local need and input by Chapter members. Themes reflect the areas of peace & reconciliation, good relations and the position of women in public and political life.
“Women in each of the Chapters have spent time discussing what’s important to them and they have chosen to develop projects that aim to address local issues within their communities,” explained Next Chapter Project Manager Mirjam Bader. “By working together using grassroots approaches, Chapter members will further develop their community development skills and strengthen their relationships, as well as networks within their local community.”
