Many women survivors in conflict-ridden and war-torn societies have been uprooted from their homes and have suffered tragic losses of husband, parents other family members or even their own children, many of them have been raped or abused in unspeakable ways; they survived war and conflicts, especially as they struggle to keep families together, collaborating in this event by committing to youth. After a chance to focus on the rights of women and girls affected by conflict, then we bring refugee women together in a safe space to learn life, business and vocational skills once enrolled, each woman starts to save something. Women increase their ability to earn an income with new skills that are in demand. They learn about their legal right, and about health, nutrition; the fruits are: Stronger families, stronger women and stronger communities. These women came from countries affected by conflicts and war.
