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;

             fair policy frameworks,

             through workshops,

             which help women to understand economic better.
