WOMEN TOGETHER SUPPORTS A UNIQUE PROGRAM OF PEER-PEER EDUCATION BUILT ON FOUR MAIN ACTIVITIES
Grassroots women’s groups travel regionally and globally into each other’s communities and learn new skills from each other in practical, hands-on, ground-level learning experiences.
WOMEN'S LEARNING EXCHANGES
Participating women’s groups are equipped with the skills and hardware to create and maintain their own online global networks for ongoing remote sharing of knowledge and experience.
DIGITAL LEARNING COMMUNITIES
Fellowships and Internships are provided for local scholars in order to document best practice, generate gender-related research, create new models for beneficial change, and move forward the global discourse on women’s empowerment.
GLOBAL SCHOLARS PROGRAM
Women’s groups from around the world convene in central learning hubs for specialized workshops on requested topics such as solar engineering, borehole maintenance, and production of recycled goods.
GLOBAL SKILLS WORKSHOPS
THERE ARE MANY WOMEN'S EMPOWERMENT AND EDUCATION PROGRAMS OUT THERE.
HOW IS WOMEN TOGETHER UNIQUE?
The learning environment is based on peer-to-peer transfer of skills and knowledge, rather than women being passive participants in external learning agendas delivered by external “experts”. Women themselves are empowered as knowledge-bearers, educators and leaders.
Women travel to teach and learn from peers in diverse settings. Unlike traditional training models which keep women positioned within the often restrictive social and cultural conditions of their own communities, the experience of travel breaks down barriers to female independence and autonomy.
Women build both real and digital communities of learning and support, thereby establishing a global presence for women from remote and protected areas who are largely unseen and unheard on the global stage.
Women build a unique learning environment focused on the sharing of locally relevant, indigenous and community-generated knowledge and skills that address both human development and environmental preservation in underserved areas.
Together, women’s groups create technologies that are sustainable, transferable, and environmentally protective.
Women build solidarity and peace across racial, ethnic, religious, cultural and national boundaries.
