This GRM Guideline is the guidance books which developed by OXFAM-Québec and GADC since last 2013 after we was successes in implement the pilot project with any family in community target.
Oxfam piloted a project designed to empower women and men to achieve greater gender equality at the household level. Meant to be combined with livelihoods projects, this initiative is being implemented by local NGOs with target beneficiaries in Kampong Thom and Kratie. Through the design of their gender road map, the spouses are brought together to discuss their current family situation, their roles and duties as well as their needs and expectations for the future. They are then led to set their own objectives for the well-being for their family looking at the economic aspect, the way they interact with each other and their self-improvement.
Tackling the issue of women’s double burden, the Gender Road Map (GRM) Project fosters women’s economic and political empowerment in encouraging their involvement in livelihoods projects and community activities with the support of their spouses. This initiative also addresses the specific issues experienced by men and promotes dialogue between the spouses.
