Since its inception, ACEV has worked tremendously hard to empower those stripped of a voice; those without access to resources that seem easily available to other groups and populations around the world.

Supported by the UN Women Fund for Gender Equality AÇEV is implementing a new program named POWER (Politics for Women: Empowerment through Participation), to equip women who are neither in employment nor in education with the skill sets and confidence to participate in decision making processes that affect themselves and their families.

Through political awareness and participation, women can not only make more informed decisions in their lives, but also become more self-sufficient and independent players in society. ACEV’s training program is based on life skills and political awareness, and is implemented in İstanbul and Bursa.
