The project was carried out in Kombolcha woreda in the East Hararghe zone of the Oromia Regional State and was funded by the United Nations Mission in Ethiopia and Eritrea (UNMEE). The project was developed in line with OSJE’s Legal Literacy and Civic Education Program and carried out to achieve certain objectives, including educating and informing women in the Woreda about their rights; addressing key women’s rights violations related to domestic violence; raising awareness regarding rights of women in marriage; and contributing to behavioral transformation at the grass root level with respect to women’s rights and violence against women.
The project revolved around two main activities: the training of trainers (ToT) and the development of a booklet on women’s rights. The beneficiaries of training were women representatives, women’s associations’ chairpersons and vice chairpersons, social court judges, community elders, prosecutors, youth associations and school teachers.
