In this video, Sydney and Syrine, two interns from Vignette Interactive follows Marwa, a core member of SPI’s Women’s Skills Development program.
Marwa reflects on the ways her involvement in the program has brought greater financial security, a sense of community belonging, and a boost in her own self-confidence. Against the odds, Marwa is more able to cover the basic needs of her four children through SPI’s livelihood program.
This year, supported by the BMZ through their TAMEB project, and in partnership with GPP, the Women’s Skills Development program is growing. The partnership allows our program to expand and provide work to more women, conduct trainings to build entrepreneurial, financial management, and handicraft skills of collective members, and reach a bigger global audience.
The women are hopeful that with GPP’s partnership and the bolstering of their own skills they will be able to connect with people around the world who will engage with their stories and dreams for the future.
Marwa tells those who don’t know Syrian women personally, that they represent hope. They represent peace.
