Workshop to Empower Women in Civil Society in Cairo


The first two-day workshop of the series entitled “Towards Efficient Women Leadership in Civil Society” was held in Cairo in cooperation with the Egyptian Youth Council for Development (EYCD). Twenty-four women representing civil society organizations, who are keen on making a difference in the society, participated in training that aims to improve administration and leadership skills to strengthen the capacities of civil society organizations to play a more effective role.

The training focused on the leadership and administration methods and skills, writing projects and concepts, communication, negotiation and crisis management skills, strategic planning, networking, and the legal framework regulating the civil society work in Egypt.  

The project comes in the frame of the FNF global topic RE:START 21.
