Socioeconomic Empowerment of Women with Epilepsy

Socioeconomic Empowerment of Women with Epilepsy (SEE-WE) is a community-based empowerment project which has as main objective to empower women with epilepsy socioeconomically, so that they can become financially independent and drive change in their communities. Through capacity building activities, these women and girls acquire job skills and are given seed capital to start up an income-generating activity. They are also trained on sexual and reproductive health, gender-based violence, and family planning while building their capacity on leadership. The project also seeks to eliminate stigma and discrimination against women with epilepsy through education and awareness-raising.
