Gender, Enterprise and Markets in Tajikistan: Building resilience, empowering lives
Oxfam initiated the three-year Gender, Enterprise and Markets (GEM) programme in Tajikistan in 2014 with financial support from the Department for International Development of the UK government. The main goal of the programme was to ensure that poor women and men in rural communities have better and more sustainable livelihoods through gendered strategies for inclusive and sustainable agricultural businesses, income and fair employment development. The GEM programme has been an enriching experience with valuable lessons that we believe are of seminal importance for Oxfam and its partners both in Tajikistan and beyond. This learning document is an attempt to consolidate and share our experience and learning in GEM with Oxfam partners.
