Women's Development Programme

The Women’s Development Programme provides training and personal development opportunities to a group of 20-25 women who are emerging leaders within their communities. The women can join the Programme either as individuals or as part of their women’s group.

The Women’s Development Programme seeks to contribute to a vibrant, integrated civil society, in which the participation of women is valued and in which there are opportunities for women to organise and influence the peace-building process. Participants will be given an opportunity to develop skills and capacity to take on leadership roles within their communities and help them have an impact in their local area. This is a cross community programme and as such participants will link and collaborate with cross community peers around shared issues.
