Last week, the Egyptian Center for Women’s Rights (ECWR) in Cairo launched the seventh and final lecture of the first cycle of online training “Establishing and Managing NGO’s”. This cycle is oriented toward NGOs and youth activists and aims to qualify them to manage their resources and improve their labor. Ms. Nehad Abolkomsan —chairwoman of ECWR— leads the lectures, all available on her Youtube channel:
At the end of the cycle, trainees fill an assessment to express their suggestions to improve this project and to receive the training materials (manuals, research papers and PowerPoint presentations).
Soon ECWR will launch the second online training cycle "Local Councils and Participation in Decision Making Process". This cycle is part of ECWR’s project "Enhancing Women’s Capacities for Effective Participation in Local Councils in Egypt", implemented in partnership with the United Nations Democracy Fund (UNDEF). The project aims to enhance the capacities of female local council candidates and to strengthen their engagement with local NGO’s in eight different governorates in Egypt.
This platform is part of the Axis 1 "Strengthening the capacities of equality actors" of the Priority Solidarity Fund "Women for the future in the Mediterranean" funded by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs and led by the European Institute of the Mediterranean, in the framework of the project “Developing Women's Empowerment” labelled by the Union for the Mediterranean.
