 Working in Tajikistan can be difficult, but it's also very interesting. There is lots of work happening to build the capabilities of local organisations, and there are a lot of opportunities to turn the country around and see changes. But it's also challenging because the status of women is deteriorating due to a number of complex issues. So to change this situation, Oxfam works with others to empower women to become more engaged in both social and economic spheres, and to advocate for positive changes that directly benefit vulnerable communities.
