  1. Information about the applicant organization

“Clean World” Aid to Women Public Union was established in 1998 and since that carried out numerous projects in the field of Human trafficking, protection of victims, gender issues, combating domestic violence and HIV/AIDS.
The organization has applied to the Azerbaijan Republic Ministry of Justice for the official registration and got the registration number 1106-Q14-2228 on 29 September 2006.

Organization has covered all regions of Azerbaijan with the raise awareness seminars on defending and preventing all forms of violence toward women. Organization has been cooperating with the relevant government bodies, international organizations and local NGOs.

“Clean World” Aid to Women Public Union is working for the benefit of the society with the women and by the means of women.
Organization mission is to change stereotypes formed over the years by the public opinion (public support). We try to protect women’s rights being citizens of the Republic of Azerbaijan, achieving women’s participation in building civil society in equality with men, develop women’s abilities and skills helping them to get free from the stereotypes and complexes. Besides all mentioned we try to form the importance of women’s role in society’s development.

2. Problem statement:
It is possible to achieve gender equality not only by the deep study of the essence of the problem, but also following the legal procedures which ensure gender equality. Some countries pay special attention to eliminating women problems by implementing special mechanisms and measurements. But in most countries, gender equality exists formally and equal rights of women are restricted. The underlying reasons of discrimination of women are men’s egoism and old traditions.
The level of education of Azerbaijani women, their role in labor market, and their participation in decision-making of social and political life in critical issues do not fit to legislative background. We can still come across with disproportions amongst women and men in all field of life in Azerbaijan. If we want to diminish this disproportion we have to find out and implement new views, strategies and means.
