First Training Course Launch

Monday, May 11th, 2009

After long waiting for the training , now EWAMT team are making the necessary preparation for the course , which will be conducted in  20-21/5/2009. We are intending to train 20 female activists in this month. the first training course will aim 10 trainees. The second one will be conducted in 27-28/5/2009, and will train 10 trainees too.

At the first,we faced a problem of finding a hall, however, now I can say that we found hall in NGO called “All Girls Association” it is really good to find a hall in association  just for women because Yemen is conservative society, and females prefer to have the training in femininity environment.

Here are some press releases had been published in websites about the project.
