Offer: CREA's Feminist Leadership, Movement Building and Rights Institute - Nepal, Kathmandu (training programme 28 January - 1 February 2013)
The Feminist Leadership, Movement Building, and Rights Institute is an annual five-day residential training programme designed by CREA. Formerly known as the South Asia Movement Building and Human Rights Institute, this Institute is designed for women working in non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in South Asia in mid-level leadership positions.
It aims to build the conceptual clarity of participants on gender, feminism, feminist leadership, and movement building, and their links to human rights in the South Asian context. It also aims to strengthen feminist leadership, strategies, and collective power of young women for their voices and demands to be heard—at the level of the community to the highest levels of decision-making.
This Institute offers mid-level women leaders in NGOs an opportunity to enhance their conceptual understanding as well as build their skills to do effective activism and advocacy on human rights. The Institute will build:
- Conceptual understanding of participants on gender, feminism, and movement building, and their links to human rights.
- Strategic skills by looking at and analysing some social movements and successful advocacy campaigns in South Asia.
- Communication skills that will enable participants to prepare effective written communication material, social messaging in videos and documentaries, and use information and communications technology (ICT) for human rights work.
