KIM Women’s Centre has an overall goal to facilitate female empowerment and gender equality to Balinese women and girls in the local area. KIM empowers women by facilitating job skills training and support programs like cooking- and English class. But most importantly, the women’s centre provides a safe haven for divorced women who are generally highly stigmatized and ostracized in the community. Also, job training helps families who feel stressed due to financial difficulties. The village as a whole benefits from these programs because families can use the additional money for education or nutrition. This source of income provides better opportunities for their children to create a more successful future.
KIM Women’s Centre provides many programs for the women. It’s a way for them to connect with others and share their stories. The programs that the centre provides are:
- Sewing program
- Cooking program
- Health and Body program
- Bamboo Bike program
- Garden program
- Environment program
- Family program
- Education program
