Societies with a fragile social structure split into two halves, the first half being marginalized and the other half empowered. In order to turn from disintegrated societies to cohesive societies, we must first establish the principle of a state of equal citizenship in rights and freedoms, which guarantees every member of Sudanese society his full right without prejudice or Discrimination on the basis of race, religion, ethnicity, culture, geography or sex.

There must be equal sharing of power, wealth, resources, privileges in job opportunities, rights, freedoms, education and health care to live a decent life, and strive to achieve distributive justice among all components of the Sudanese people .

Social development is contingent upon strengthening the role of women

economically at all levels and obtaining their due rights in full, and in return, that they themselves contribute to social development and raise the wheel of production by all available mechanisms and means, whether through individuals, institutions, organizations, associations…..etc.

Opening wide opportunities for women to economic entrepreneurship

to improve the living situation among the family and in turn contribute to the improvement of the family fabric and provide a family environment in which the spirit of participation and contribution to cover basic needs and thus supports the welfare of the simple family and the complex society.

It also opened the door to opportunities for craftswomen and workers in the field of handicrafts (leather _ accessories _ folklore _ ceramics) and simple manufacturing industries of all kinds (juice concentrates _ drying vegetables and fruits _ jams _ baked goods _ canning), soap making and knitting.

Of course, it is unfair to women to make them work in small areas with limited income that does not solve the economic problem definitively, but at least deals with it in part. (economically) and supports itself and is independent of social constraints that view it as an unproductive consumer. However, the Sudanese reality and the distorted social pattern also excluded the woman in one way or another from the production arena with very flimsy pretexts, for example: the society’s view of her as an educator whose natural role is to carry out the domestic duties of bringing up, raising and nurturing children. Neglecting girls’ education also affects their competition with men in job opportunities and in all service and investment institutions.

Most of the jobs are based on discrimination under the pretext of women’s physical structure and their inability to withstand the pressures of work, and sometimes the conditions are set clear (jobs for men only). here as hard work? It is always over-represented in the informal and unsafe types of employment, knowing that wages are unequal and the job task is one. This is something that needs to be addressed a lot!

Rural women face a number of economic challenges due to the dire living situation in rural and remote areas, so they must be at the heart of efforts to achieve sustainable development and seek to reduce their unpaid burdens. Therefore, providing health and educational services to rural women is very important. When rural women are able to access resources, services and opportunities, they become a contributor to the fight against poverty, hunger and malnutrition in their communities, and the results of this are evident in social and economic progress and sustainable development in general.

The latest data indicate that 66% of women worldwide produce 50% of the food resources, receive only 10% of the income and own only 1% of the property. Despite the progress in the issue of women’s empowerment in recent years, women and girls represent two thirds of the illiterate in the world, and an average of 6 out of the 10 poorest people in the world.

There are development goals set by the United Nations to reduce poverty and provide health and education, and indicators have been set to achieve these goals. Among the goals are the interest in girls’ education, increasing women’s wages in the agricultural sector, enhancing the role of women in corporate boards, obtaining ownership rights to land, property and natural resources, and reducing maternal mortality rate.

As for the displaced women affected by the wars, they are more in need and have been subjected to complex marginalization that requires plans and strategies that carry deep and radical solutions. The displaced women live in camps and host communities, so their participation in political and economic processes is very marginal. The camp is a new environment for the displaced woman in which a number of psychological, social, economic, cultural and legal problems prevail as a result of the painful war experience she was exposed to.

These secretions hinder their stability and sense of safety, and the future vision for them is unclear. This situation requires government interventions, civil society organizations, humanitarian organizations, and all agencies and bodies that support women in all contexts to develop programs to empower displaced women and enhance their roles, make clear contributions to psychological support, provide a safe environment for them, protect their rights with great sensitivity, and design appropriate economic projects with their status in camps.

He has a simple experience with the women of one of the North Darfur camps. There is an organization that owned economic projects for the displaced women represented in the fattening of goats. It is noticeable that the project succeeded resoundingly, and this is due to the fact that these displaced women have great capabilities in managing economic projects and the project found great harmony among the community (displaced women). ) and implementers, and their creativity in the project appeared beautifully, as one of the participants in the project said that she benefited greatly and added that she is working on fattening goats and benefiting from the resulting milk to feed her children
