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
“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
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
- 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.
