The N-PEACE initiative is pleased to launch its second Regional Training of Trainers (ToT) program.

The ToT workshop will be held from 20-27 November 2012 in Bangkok, Thailand. This innovative ToT program will expose participants to Inclusive Security: A Curriculum for Women Waging Peace, which is a unique teaching tool that aims to foster strong coalitions, enhance problem solving skills, bolster confidence, and most significantly result in a concrete agenda for advancing women’s leadership in peace and security.

Selected through a competitive process, the participants will become a member of and form the second batch of trainers for the N-PEACE network, and will remain engaged with the N-Peace partners through trainings and other events.
