WLP Egypt/Forum for Women in Development (FWID)  has begun the third phase of an ongoing initiative to build capacity and facilitate cooperation between disparate civil society organizations (CSOs) non-governmental organizations (NGOs) throughout Egypt. The initiative, entitled “The Role of Civil Society in Attaining Social Justice,” encompasses diverse groups focusing on women’s rights, poverty reduction, and fighting corruption, among others. The initiative is seen as particularly important at a time when CSOs and NGOs of all types are facing increasing restrictions from the Egyptian government.
Leadership training in India, an activist convention in Egypt, and human rights movement building in Marrakesh... These are just a few of the exciting activities happening around the Partnership this fall.
Activists, researchers, and supporters from 40 countries took part in WLP’s 2nd global online event, “Exposing the Realities of Combatting Sexual Harassment: Activists from around the World Unite to Share their Stories,” on November 19, 2014.
