As part of the Swedish International Development Agency’s International Training Programmes, the Human Rights towards Gender Equality training programme will be held in two parts: at Stockholm/Uppsala, Sweden and at another location (to be decided) from 7 March to 1 April 2011 and in October 2011 respectively.
The Programme seeks to strengthen the participant organisations capacity in the field of human rights and gender eqality and get increased knowledge on how to use tools for gender mainstreaming. Strategy for change will strengthen the commitment of organizations and institutions to invest in and institutionalize gender-sensitive change. The programme contains a 4-week training course in Sweden and a follow-up seminar in Asia, Latin America or Africa. The training course includes lectures, group and individual exercises as well as study tours. An individual project work is an important part of the programme.
Candidates from Ethiopia, Laos, Kenya, Tanzania and Vietnam can apply to participate in the programme.
The SIDA will cover all training cost such as lectures, literature, documentation, study tours and certain social activities as well as accommodation costs including board and lodging. International travel cost to and from Sweden, and in connection to the fourth and fifth phase of the Programme, will also be covered by SIDA. The participant carries costs incurred in travelling to the nearest international airport in the home country, passport and visa costs and personal expenses.
