Advocacy Academy Within IDPs and Host Communities Project

The Advocacy Academy has launched today in Kyiv as part of the Internally Displaced Persons and Host Communities: Building Tolerance Through Dialogue Project and brought together women activists from 6 regions of Ukraine.

On January 22-24, 36 participants, together with a trainer and presenters of successful cases, will study key components of advocacy, conduct risk assessments, investigate causes and consequences, and learn about advantages of coalition building. A small grant competition will be announced within the Project to support advocacy campaigns developed and implemented by representatives of initiative groups and NGOs at the local level.

The Project is implemented by the Ukrainian Women's Fund in partnership with the Dnipropetrovsk NGO “Women's Information-Coordination Centre”, NGO “VIS”, Centre of Gender Culture, Successful Woman Kherson Regional Centre, NGO “Intelligence of Sumy Region”, and Public Initiatives Association and with the support of the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation.
