The main objective of this area of work is to demystify economics by empowering

rural women with basic economic policy analytical and advocacy skills so that they

are able to speak out and to demand economic justice from the duty bearers.

AWEPON’s synthesis of the operational meaning of economics is “the rule of the

household.” This takes into account the Biblical teachings on how to manage the

household economy through equitable and just rules that recognize the care

economy.

“A good economist is a good steward and is therefore one who is faithful and

wise steward, whom his Lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them

their portion of meat in due season.” Luke 12:42.

It is this basic conceptualization of Economics that shapes AWEPON Economic Policy

interventions.

AWEPON undertakes the following activities;

  • Undertakes policy analysis, lobbies and advocates for gender sensitive and

             fair policy frameworks,

  • Trains women to understand Economics and how it impacts on them

             through workshops,

  • Trains women in Value addition and market competitiveness,
  • Simplifies the Economic jargons and develops simple economic literary kits

             which help women to understand economic better.
