UN Women in the framework of “EU for Gender Equality in Albania: Implementation of the EU Gender Equality Acquis”, UN Joint Programme funded by the European Union through UN Albania SDG Acceleration Fund is planning to engage a civil society organization (CSO) based in Albania as Responsible Party to implement “Support women economic empowerment in the artisan value chain (VC) in the administrative unit of Farkë, Tirana Municipality”.
The intervention is foreseen to directly impact the VC inclusion and economic empowerment of an estimated 25-30 women beneficiaries in Farka. Support will be provided to women employment and inclusion in the artisan VC, by establishing a safe work environment and promoting women-dedicated work processes, and by introducing new models of products based on market demand. The intervention will aim at establishing a local market in a free space provided by the local administration and organize market inauguration day designed as a local fair to promote artisan products and create market linkages.
The activities in this intervention aim to engage women – particularly poor, vulnerable and marginalized women – who will effectively engage and participate in value chains and market system, resulting in earning higher incomes, and enjoy economic security.
This objective will be achieved by (i) increasing the number of employed/self-employed women in production, processing and marketing of artisan products; (ii) support women in market development and (iii) establish a local market.
The deadline for the receipt of the complete proposals is 28 January 2022, not later than 18:00 hrs.
