Where We Are

Women's Learning Partnership is made up of WLP International in the USA and 20 WLP national and regional partners, based in Brazil, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Iran, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Malaysia, Mauritania, Morocco, Mozambique, Pakistan, Palestine, Senegal, Turkey, and Zimbabwe.

While each partner is autonomous and independent, we share the values and aspirations of the Partnership as a whole. We are committed to the creation of tolerant, egalitarian, and democratic communities developed through partnerships based on cooperation, trust, and respect. We sustain our partnerships through open, ongoing and in-depth communication.

Together we promote a model of participatory leadership that values the skills and contributions of every individual and emphasizes the importance of collective action for gender equality and social justice.

We work together to develop training curriculum and implement programs on leadership and empowerment; organizational capacity building; ICT capacity building; women's human rights; and culture of peace. We also engage in collective advocacy and networking efforts to ensure that the voices of women from the Global South, particularly Muslim-majority societies, are heard.

By working in partnership, we put our collective energies behind common goals, significantly increasing our impact on the socio-political environment.
