The Grenada Nationally Organization of Women Official Launch and Mini-Exhibition of the Basic Carpentry and Joinery Skills for Women Hurricane Shutters Project scheduled to take place at the Pearls Community Centre today Friday 05 July 2013 at 10:30 am.
This will be a public and local community event organized to highlight successful outcomes and impact from a small-scale participatory development project designed and managed by our Project Team.
The project, which is being funded by the Direct Aid Program (DAP) of the Government of Australia and facilitated by Carpentry and Joinery Artisans from NEWLO and the Pearls Community, is now at its mid-way point said a statement from GNOW which explained that the “evidence of its success to date, is a sizeable number of saleable wooden hurricane shutters in elegant designs and beautiful finish that the women have produced and are enthused about marketing to the wider public.”
The Grenada National Organization of Women said that it is very proud of these early outcomes from an initiative rightly intended to economically empower young employed rural women from the Pearls and Simon communities and their environs.
“Even more, we are very pleased with evidence of its tremendous impact on the communities and among women of other communities who are increasingly voicing interest in the project and desire to participate in the near future,” said the statement from GNOW.
