Through this project, EQUALITY for Peace and Development (EPD) assessed women’s access to higher education and advocated for increasing women’s access to higher education. As part of this project, EPD also organized awareness raising workshops on women’s education rights based on Islamic principles. These workshops were facilitated by religious leaders in seven provinces.
EPD advocated for the approval of two policy proposals by the Ministries of Education and Higher Education as well as cabinet of ministers, which were eventually approved and ratified. These policies were developed by the Ministry of Women’s Affairs and Civil Society.
