Project Summary
Elevator Pitch

Concise Summary: Help us pitch this solution! Provide an explanation within 3-4 short sentences.

As a new Women Forum we want to change to many things related to the women life in our areas. Women here has always been treated as a second hand, without any right to speak or to give her opinion on her family and outside. Women here are supposed just to stay home and taking care about their children and the numerous family. But what about her really needs? For example taking care about her own body and her health? They just go on the hospitals when the disease is already developed on their bodies. We want to prevent this by keeping trainings from our doctors, free mammography and by creating a website, a facebook page, where they can find all information needed and make questions and discussions directly online with the doctors. The target group will be all the women over 30, and specially the rural ones.

About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

As a new Women Forum we want to change to many things related to the women life in our areas. Women here has always been treated as a second hand, without any right to speak or to give her opinion on her family and outside. Women here are supposed just to stay home and taking care about their children and the numerous family. But what about her really needs? For example taking care about her own body and her health? They just go on the hospitals when the disease is already developed on their bodies.

The target group will be all the women over 30, and specially the rural ones.

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

A primary solution can be the finding out all the women than can have chances to have for example a breast cancer because of inherited genes. A second can be doing free mammographys for all the women informed. A third solution can be preventing all the types of tummors that can be catched up on first steps and can be eliminated.
Impact: How does it Work

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

The main goal will be to inform as much as we can women about this trainings and than be in touch with them throughout websites, facebook pages and cellphones in order to inform them for everything related to their health. A doctor or a nurse can be in touch throughout technology communications listed above with all the women that need help.
Sustainability

Marketplace: Who else is addressing the problem outlined here? How does the proposed project differ from these approaches?

There ate to many women groups for example, “The association women group” that can compete about the same thing, but we can say for sure that after this money project will run out we can be sustainable with the help of the municipality of our town Gostivar.The last one can help us financially for achieving our goals.
