Abstract:
This needs assessment is focused explicitly on achieving gender equality and women’s empowerment,. The research for this study was conducted in Mekelle, the capital city of the Tigray National Regional State, situated 780 kilometers north of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia’s capital. MCI’s research has shown that attention to gender equality has increased across all sectors of Mekelle society. Nevertheless, significant gaps still exist. Violence against women, including rape, remains a problem.This needs assessment puts forward a number of practical interventions to help strengthen support for enforcing the rights of girls and women.
