Avrupa Birliği Madad İnovasyon Lab III: Kadının Güçlendirilmesi Katılımcılarını Arıyor

This is a road to resilience!
We are aware of your challenges as a women! Either Syrian or local, participate at our Innovation Lab and let's find a solution together. Are you motivated to make a positive contribution to women within your community, within the context of the Syrian crisis? Are you keen on developing a business solution to address women and girls’ specific needs and aspirations?

If your answer to these questions is a loud YES, we invite you to apply to the EU Madad Innovation Lab on Women Empowerment, organised by the Qudra Programme*. Together with members from refugee, IDP and host community, you will participate in design thinking sessions. You will be guided to develop solutions to the challenges you jointly identify in the context of the Syrian crisis.

You will be exposed to a variety of experts in the field and will get to know and share ideas with your peers from Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan and the Kurdistan Region of Iraq/KRI. At the end of the process, the prototype you and your team developed, has a chance of receiving support from the EU Madad Innovation Fund.

During the final event of the programme, the Pitching Day, a Jury (consisting of representatives of our commissioning parties, political partners and other relevant stakeholders of Qudra Programme) will select the most innovative ideas which will be provided EU Madad Innovation Fund -small seed fund- to implement their projects.

The guiding question of the Madad Lab III is:

How do we foster women empowerment within Syrian refugees, IDP’s and host communities through innovation and dialogue?


* The Qudra Programme is a regional action financed by the EU Regional Trust Fund in Response to the Syrian Crisis, the 'Madad' Fund and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) seeking to strengthen resilience for Syrian refugees, IDPs and host communities in response to the Syrian and Iraqi crises. The programme is jointly implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, Expertise France (EF) and Spanish Agency for International Development (AECID) in programme partner countries of Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and the Kurdistan Region of Iraq/KRI.
