Working with grassroots partners, WCI creates programs focused on enhancing the advocacy and leadership skills of women leaders, thereby increasing their ability to effectively participate in conflict mitigation, economic development, political processes, and civil society. WCI's programs are rooted in a Training-of-Trainers (ToT) model through which we build local ecosystems with partners that foster the empowerment of women and girls.
WCI’s Community Engagement curriculum provides education and training women in leadership, political participation, mobilization, and advocacy. Through our workshops in grassroots organizing and action planning, WCI provides women with the tools they need to meaningfully participate in community development and decision-making processes.
WCI’s Economic Sustainability curriculum equips women with the knowledge to take on larger roles in financial management, understand and access financial resources, and grow their own businesses through education in entrepreneurship and budgeting. WCI partners with financial institutions in order to increase the sustainability of women’s wealth and ensure their inclusion in lasting economic development.
WCI’s Conflict Transformation curriculum, focusing on advocacy, negotiation, and leadership, increases individuals’ ability to mindfully participate in conflict prevention, mitigation, resolution, and peacebuilding efforts. WCI educates communities and individuals about the importance of recognizing the role of women as leaders in peacebuilding processes to create meaningful solutions to interpersonal, societal, and political conflicts.
