Women’s Political Participation | “Menjana Kuasa Wanita”
The WPP programme is aimed at enhance the awareness level and skills of grassroots leaders and potential election candidates. The programme builds on an initial training workshop with a follow-up mentorship programme to enable our participants to deepen their understanding of gender equality and develop vital leadership skills.
This programme has trained over 500 grassroots leaders and potential candidates for elected office. At the end of the programme, we expect our “graduates” to be able to articulate issues, participate and represent themselves at all levels.
As part of this programme, EMPOWER is also training participants from Orang Asli communities in Negri Sembilan, Pahang and Melaka on the documentation of rights violation through the use of information and communications technology (ICT).
