Background

There is a need for rights-based organization in Trabzon where women can socialize, get organized and involve in income-generating activities. However, due to the lack of information and experience, women are afraid of getting organized and creating a cooperative. It is necessary to provide a platform where women can receive information on women’s cooperative and come together with other cooperative members.
