“I am one of the trainees in the training workshop that addressed women’s political participation. I benefited a great deal from the workshop: I acquired strength, will power, perseverance, and courage, and learned that women have a heard voice and strength. From this strength and drive, I now have the ability strive to become a leader and participate in the political process. Although I am a lawyer, I lacked a lot (of skills), and now with this training I believe I am on the right path.”

“It was an exceptional training workshop. I wasn’t anticipating being accepted but fortunately I was selected and I did very well. I benefited a lot and I gained knowledge and skills in leadership, advocacy, and media presence. After I completed my training I met with a number of NGOs, and I was selected as a coordinators for a program that trains election monitors for 2021, implemented by the Peace and Freedom Organization. Thank you for granting me this opportunity!”
