"Symposia II" project 

About Project

“Symposia II” project serves as a vehicle against the shrinking of civic spaces, particularly amidst the environment of violence escalation. It aims to foster youth and women engagement and bridge the gaps between national leadership and potential local youth leaders. The project also seeks to catalyse women and youths' involvement in decision-making processes. Through platforms, knowledge dissemination, essential tools, and networking opportunities, women will be empowered as agents of transformative change leaders. 

The “Symposia II” project is implemented by REFORM and funded by DIAKONIA and Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA)

Budget: 525,000 SEK for 2024.
