The project “Fair Play 3.0 – The Power Games!” is selected for funding by the German National Agency for Erasmus+ Programme. The project coordinator is one of our strategic partners, IJGD from Bonn.
IJGD has decided to continue working with this third project sequel with gender equality as one of the most important topics in regards to respect of human rights. This project will address more specific issues in our society, which also affect International Voluntary Service, namely power structures and inequality in the access to rights and power distribution in the society. Furthermore, it would explore the effects of unequal power distribution in politics, economy and at home, summing up the overall image of the position of woman in the society and therefore in the voluntary projects themselves.
