The curriculum’s three DVDs, dubbed in Arabic, use the voices of well-known actors from Jordan and the region to share new concepts in a familiar idiom. The curriculum includes a training handbook and three guides that provide interactive, scenario-based activities. Examples of participatory and democratic learning throughout the curriculum enable human rights and democracy activists, educators, women leaders, and facilitators to learn how to implement successful advocacy campaigns, communicate effectively with the media, and train trainers.
Recent workshops conducted by WLP partners Sisterhood Is Global Institute/Jordan (SIGI/J) and the Foundation for the Support of Women's Work (Turkey) provided a dynamic learning environment for women to develop effective leadership skills, explore advocacy strategies, and discuss ways to overcome the challenges they face in taking on leadership roles in their families and communities.
From September 5 to October 21, 2005, a group of 14 experienced leadership trainers from Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco and Palestine participated in a five-week prototype Arabic eCourse to test and adapt the Arabic curriculum in preparation for a full eCourse in 2006.
