First: Watch a video about the work of Women’s Learning Partnership.

They write about themselves: WLP Women’s Learning Partnership for rights, development and peace is dedicated to women’s leadership and empowerment. At its essence, WLP is a builder of networks, working with 18 autonomous and independent partner organizations in the Global South, particularly in Muslim-majority societies, to empower women to transform their families, communities, and societies.

We strongly believe that women, working in partnership, will learn the skills and implement the strategies needed to secure human rights, contribute to the development of their communities, and ultimately create a more peaceful world.

Our primary objectives are to increase the number of women taking on leadership and decision-making roles at family, community, and national levels, and to improve the effectiveness of feminist movements in Muslim-majority societies and globally by strengthening the capacity of our partner organizations.

WLP is an international, non-governmental organization (NGO) in Special Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations.

What We Do: In cooperation with our partners, we create culturally-adapted leadership training curriculum and implement leadership and empowerment programs for grassroots women in 18 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East.

We build the organizational capacity and ICT capacity of our partner organizations to support the collective mobilization of women in the Global South for gender equality and social justice.

In order to expand and protect women’s human rights and to build a culture of peace, we engage in campaigns and hold South-South and South-North dialogues on the challenges and opportunities facing women in the Global South, particularly in Muslim-majority societies.

We ensure that gender equality remains on the agenda of policymakers and civil society leaders through our advocacy and networking activities.

Our news, events, and publications share the experiences of women organizers in the Global South, raising the visibility of their work, and enriching the global debate on gender equality, rights, development, and peace. (Read the rest on their website WLP).
