Educational session of UOWM

Gender budgeting

Presenter: Gordana Trenkoska

On the second day of the NGO fair, on 4th December in organization of the Union of Organizations of Women in Macedonia (UOWM), there was an educational session titled “Gender Budgeting”.

Gender budgeting, as the presenter Gordana Trenkoska stated, represents an analysis of the annual income and outflow from gender perspective; so to say it includes the public income and outflow.

“The European women lobby, in which the AOWM is a member, gives directions for initiating the gender budget. There are many arguments for sensible gender budgeting- larger efficiency in the public spending, unequal education as a spending factor, and the conclusion that time is money. The right people for initiating of the gender budgeting are the MP   s, the Ministry of Finance or some other ministry, as well as the women civic organizations“stated the presenter Trenkoska.

At the end of the presentation, Gordana Trenkoska illuminated the tools and methods that are used in the gender budgeting: analysis of the budget process, estimation for the disaggregating users, budget disaggregated analysis of the annual incomes, gender disaggregated analysis on the budget influence, gender- sensible frame to a long-term rate, and report on the gender awareness in the budget.

The western -European countries  have incorporated the gender budgeting.   



Job Vacancies

“Give pleasure to your boss!!!”
These days, a new commercial about a new coffee brand appeared on TV. I presume you’ve already seen it. A secretary slips when bringing coffee to her boss, slides down his desk on her stomach to stop in front of him with the coffee in her hand? I am not sure how you react to it, but after I had seen it for the first time I was left with my mouth open. It was a mixed feeling of bewilderment, sickness, disbelief…how could somebody think of something like that? How could nobody react to this commercial?

My attitude towards the language
“People who are of the same origin and who speak the same words and who live and make friends of each other, who have the same customs and songs and entertainment are what we call a nation, and the place where that people lives is called the people's country. Thus the Macedonians also are a nation and the place which is theirs is called Macedonia.”
Armenian community in the Republic of Macedonia
About 110 families cherish both the Armenian and the Macedonian culture
The genesis of the Armenian communities on the territory of today’s Macedonia goes back to the medieval times as can be proved by the numerous papers, traveling notes by foreign travelers who stayed or passed through the towns where among other nations, lived the Armenians.
