The e5 Keighley Women and Girl’s Empowerment Project is a project which aims to empower women and girls to have the confidence and strength to make important decisions that affect their lives and to improve the quality of support they receive.
The project in more detail
e5 is designed to give women and girls the opportunities and tools to be able to improve their lives.
e5 will be holding CSE (Child Sexual Exploitation) & Women’s Forums, including community Conversation Cafes, to create safe spaces for women to explore and take ownership of their issues. Most of these workshops will be focused on increasing the women’s sense of agency and confidence to discuss and solve their own problems.
To facilitate this, e5 will be focusing on the development of social, leadership & life skills so women have the capacity to follow through with their decisions, have the tools to express their rights and to ensure that their immediate needs are met.
Due to our longstanding relationship with the local Black and Minority Ethnic and Asian community, part of our work will focus on challenging the community and cultural acceptance of Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) and damaging gender stereotypes.
