More than Legal Capacity Building; Legal Counseling

The “Housewives’ Rights” project has recruited more than 200 women so far from the different areas of Baalbeck, Ein, Bednayel and El- Hermel. The project didn’t only provide legal awareness seminars in different topic related to legal rights of housewives in the Islamic Shariaa, but it also provides a framework for discussion and participation for women and experts to learn more, understand and interpret Housewives rights in Islam. Moreover, some women took the opportunity to discuss in these seminars their own social problems to learn how to solve them; many seminars ended with free counseling sessions.

The Housewives project, funded by the World Bank, will end up this week but many women would keep in touch through the WPE Facebook page.
