Since 1991 the Republic of Turkey Prime Ministry, Southeastern Anatolia Project Regional Development Administration (GAP-RDA) has identified and started a project to improve the status of women in the GAP Region. In the framework of this project, the Multi-Purpose Community Centers (ÇATOMs) provide training programs for women and young girls in literacy, health and family planning, maternal and child health, nutrition, home economy and income-generating activities. They also provide social and culture activities which have been organized, and established in squatter settlement and central villages since 1995. A participatory, holistic and integrated approach is the basic policy of all ÇATOMs. The contexts of the basic activities carried out in the center are determined by the participation of the target groups and, their participation and contribution are essential in the applications. In this paper, the process of project implementation and the outcomes of the project are presented.
