This organization is government-recognized. It has been working for 20 years. Their first focus was to empower women. Members believe that women´s role in society is very important because women have the talent to be self-reliant and take leadership roles, but due to their culture, they have been for a long time only taking care of the households. To change this culture, they are engaging women in decision-making and supporting them to lead social activities. Through sustainable local initiatives, they gather people of various faiths and involve them in initiatives to support women´s livelihoods. Also, women in these programs take more prominent roles in the education of their children and start environmental programs. Members of the Cooperation Circle believe women’s empowerment assures a better future for the children. Now they are also working on children’s education and environmental education to create a discrimination-free and peaceful society.
