Training of Volunteers
Aspiring volunteers go through a tailor made training which explores fundamental topics such as Gender Equality, Feminism and Advocacy. This training is essential to ensure future volunteers are in tune with the organization and are able to work effectively.
Training of Support Groups
This training of support groups is part of a rural outreach project that aims to train and educate local communities and community leaders in the rural areas about violence against women. The training is necessary to equip the local support group with the knowledge and skills needed to effectively support and assist women and children affected by violence against women.
Local support groups are from the project area in the northern and interior part of Sabah.
Training of Trainers for Men
The training of trainers is part of the rural outreach project that aims to train and educate local communities and community leaders in the rural areas about violence against women. As men’s participation is essential in ending violence against women, these groups of men need to be good examples to men in their communities. A more focused training has been devised to ensure that they are more informed and conscious about gender equality and the roles they play.
Capacity Building Training
We recently completed a six week capacity building program for staff and volunteers. It was a creative opportunity to explore issues relating to gender, gender equality, feminism and advocacy. The program has now been developed into an interactive and engaging volunteer training program for all new volunteers.
For 30 years, SAWO has been striving for women's rights and gender equality. Our mission is to promote equal rights for all, especially women and children in our society.
