Candles

Wednesday, November 25th, 2009

We started the eighth workshop last on Thursday 12th of November 2009 with 12 trainees, but as usual we could not finish it because the Internet connection was very slow. So, we finish it on the 19th of November 2009 with only 9 trainees. It was really depressing when you face such obstacles in Twentieth First century. However, we have believed that our efforts are going to be fruitful, and EWAMT project is like a candle with other candles, which are lighting up the darkness in Yemen.

At the end of the workshop, we discussed some topics such as freedom of speech, sexual harassment in Yemen. Talking about freedom of speech in Yemen leads you to sensitive position with the government, so we were talking about it with fear of the existence of spies.

Finally, with bride we can say that until now we have trained 76 women activists, and we will keep going on.
