The Invisible Labourers’: Women in the Informal Sector

Invisible labourers was a four-year long project implemented by SIHA which targeted women working in the informal sector in Sudan i.e. tea and food sellers, domestic workers, petty traders and handicraft makers. The project trained hundreds of women on organizing themselves in cooperative so they can better advocate for their rights and protect themselves. They learn to improve their skills and to compete better in the markets by increasing profits, manage small loans (for business expansion) and acquire legal awarenss to resist dicriminatory laws.
