The Women's Forum for Research and Training (WFRT) will organize its 3rd Conference in Aden City April 1-2.
Titled “Poverty is flagrant violation for Human Rights” it is cooperation with the Canada Development Program for Local Initiatives.
The conference aims at highlighting problems inside and outside that cause poverty to spread, and the accompanied illiteracy, oppression and violence that change societies life into consumerism rather than the life and social and human relationships.
Moreover, poverty represents a flagrant violation of human rights, humanity, and equality between men and women in all social, economic, political and law fields.
It is expected that female and male experts and specialists are going to participate, as well as governmental, non-governmental, experts in human rights and economic systems.
