Support for rural women's organisations

Description

Financial and / or organisational support for rural women’s organisations in villages and towns. These organisations arrange readings, theatre visits and informative trips, as well as information networks on everyday issues and social discourse.

Organisations for rural women and young people are an effective channel for nurturing traditional forms of cultural life in rural areas and connecting with urban cultural and social life.
