What We Do

Women’s Learning Partnership (WLP) will increase Syrian refugee women’s ability to create positive change for their communities through the Participation and Empowerment of Syrian Refugee Women in Jordan and Lebanon project, funded by the United Nations Democracy Fund (UNDEF). The initiative will work with individual Syrian women and with local organizations providing services to them.
Asma Khader, a leading advocate for women's rights in Jordan, discusses peace and security in Jordan in the context of United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325. 
Women’s Learning Partnership will be hosting three parallel events during the 62nd Session of the UN Commission on the Status of Women in New York City. 
 WLP Lebanon conducted capacity building and leadership workshops for Syrian women refugees in March, April, July, and August 2017 as part of the Empowering Syrian Refugee Women for a Better Future project. The workshops use WLP’s inclusive leadership model to engage participants in activities that challenge the identity of “refugee,” helping them to transition from a state of trauma to a state of empowerment and engagement with their communities.
Women’s Learning Partnership will be hosting two parallel events during the 61st Session of the UN Commission on the Status of Women in New York City. Expert panelists will discuss empowering Syrian refugee women, and leading women poets will present readings on violence and peace. 
WLP’s Turkey partner FSWW held an Advanced Training of Trainers (TOT) Institute on human rights and democracy-building on September 5-9, 2016, in Istanbul. Eleven women, all experienced WLP workshop facilitators in FSWW’s network, participated in the training.
Women’s Learning Partnership convened a Global Training of Trainers on October 5, 2016, following its 16th annual Transnational Partners Convening (TPC) in Bethesda, Maryland. The workshop focused on the development of curriculum for WLP’s new initiatives on women refugees and family law reform.
