The Prowomen Project is aimed at women with children, who are seeking their own professional fulfillment. In fact, due to the current economic and financial crisis, for women who are also mothers the difficulty of finding a job is added to the commitment of reconciling domestic familiar with work.
Many researches carried out in different European countries show a problematic situation for women:
>High Rate of unemployment, worsened by the fact that many women who don’t work are not even registered as unemployed,
>Many women leave the job in order to make grow their children, unable to bear the excessive costs of childcare and babysitting,
>Women who intend to start a business are disadvantaged if compared to men in obtaining necessary funding,
>Businesses created by women are less competitive and less innovative than the male ones.
The project aims to provide valuable assistance to women-mothers, addressing the double problem of unemployment and the need to balance work with family, through a targeted training that gives them the skills necessary to promote female entrepreneurship.
Project activities will focus on the following priorities:
>Making a viable strategy to increase skills for the target group “women-mothers” who wants to combine work and family life by finding appropriate solutions as Home Based Business.
>Promote linguistic diversity and intercultural awareness of the EU.
>Nowadays, investing on women, on their training and specialization, in this critical context as the current one that involves the whole national and international economy, appears to be a proper solution to support employment, local and national economy and, specifically, to support families who may rely on an additional income, a lower risk of poverty, more time for educating and raise children.
