The Training of Trainers course on Human Rights and Gender concluded in Taiz last Wednesday.
The course was organized by Women Forum for Research and Training (WFRT) in cooperation with Oxfam.
In the closing ceremony, Taiz deputy governor, Mr. Mohammed Al Ansi attended.
The 27 participants, who represent 15 NGOs and associations, were given certificates of merit delivered by the deputy governor. The participants listened to different lectures on the concept of the gender, and were trained on how to train other people using the modern scientific methods.
Sua’ad Al Qadasi, chairwomen of the WFRT said in a statement to the Yemen Times, “Most of the NGOs have no specialist trainers in human rights, so this course comes due to the dire necessity for such qualified trainers.”
Al Qadasi added that at the end of the course that some of the participants will be chosen carefully to attend another advanced course in Cairo or Lebanon and then five persons will be selected to take part in a specialist course for trainers in Holland or London.
“At the end of this year, we’ll have five well qualified trainers whom we may depend on to train others in human rights and gender in Yemen,” Al Qadasi said.
Noradeen Al Aza’azi, a participant, said that the course is very qualitative and there is a need for such courses. “The course concentrated on the concept of human rights and it came out with a positive results,” said another participant.
Mutaher Ashargabi, a participant from the WFRT said, “We got reasonable mount of experiences and skills which enable us to train others on the Gender and human rights and we also got acquainted with different training theories.”
