IFOR WPP Training of Trainers

19 men from 17 countries in Central America, Africa, Asia and Europe participated in a training of trainers (ToT) on ‘Gender-Sensitive Active Non-Violence Training: Exploring Masculinities, Violence and Peacebuilding’ in Manila, Philippines from 1-16 July. The Women's Peacemakers Program (WPP) of the International Fellowship of Reconciliation organised the event, which was part of a ToT Program launched in 2009. IANSA Woman and AKKAPKA member Jasmin Nario-Galace spoke about UN Security Council resolution 1325 and 1820 on women, peace and security; and the national action plan of the Philippines to implement these resolutions. A manual building on the lessons from the trainings will be published later this year.
