FIDEM is passionate about the transformative power of education, and we work with participants directly at a grassroots level to enable them to access learning so that they can increase their confidence, prioritise their independence and achieve their career and life goals on their own terms.
We have been providing vocational assistance to vulnerable women since our inception in 2018. Building on our knowledge and experience to date, in September 2020 we officially formalised and launched our Educate to Empower Programme, which is open to participants across Malta and Gozo.
Our Educate to Empower Programme funds educational courses and learning materials, such as books and laptops, for women and adolescent girls who have found a learning opportunity which would positively impact their future, but cannot currently pursue it without financial support.
We aim to enable our Educate to Empower Programme participants to achieve their career and life goals, and we stand alongside them throughout their educational journey both practically and emotionally to provide fully rounded support. This includes assistance with job placements once they are ready to take their next steps.
We provide access to psychological support services for our participants too if required - enabling them to work on overcoming their emotional and mental wellbeing concerns so that they can focus on their education.
FIDEM also offers practical support to vulnerable women, adolescent girls and children on an ongoing basis by providing urgently needed computer equipment for learning, educational books, school uniforms and school supplies.
