E.M.power young women from ethnic minorities
"There is no tool for development more effective than the empowerment of women." - Kofi Annan
The empowerment of women, and more specifically the empowerment of young ethnic minority women, takes us one step further in SALTO's advocacy role for young people with fewer opportunities. Examples of good (Youth in Action) practice demonstrate that young ethnic minority women benefit extremely well from the educational frame offered by the Youth in Action programme with many projects linkingempowerment as a process with emancipation as their final aim. Yet young ethnic minority women remain a group which is often invisible or underrepresented in international training courses, seminars and events. Empowered people have freedom of choice and action. This in turn enables them to better influence the course of their lives and the decisions which affect them. In order to give the opportunity to ethnic minority young women toempower themselves, as a group and as an individual, this specific target group needs specific support and methods. The Youth in Action programme is an excellent tool in order to reach this aim. This booklet is part of the SALTO 'Inclusion for ALL' series.
