WLP has developed over a dozen training manuals, many of which are available in multiple languages. These manuals provide curriculum, facilitation guidelines, and background materials on the topics they cover, which include participatory leadership, political participation, women’s rights, ending violence against women, and strengthening civil society organizations, among others. WLP creates manuals at the request of our partners and women’s rights advocates in the field who wish to present subject matter to grassroots women in a non-hierarchical, dialogue-based, participatory environment. Most of our manuals emphasize shared learning where workshop participants explore the content through problem-solving, role-playing, and discussions.
In WLP’s Learning Center you can access and download all of our manuals. In addition, to help facilitators customize their lessons, we have made available under Resources for Trainers selected excerpts from our manuals, such as workshop sessions, introductory essays, supplemental materials, and alternative training sessions on various topics. These resources are excerpted from the most commonly used WLP manuals. Educators can adapt the excerpts for their own cultural and teaching contexts, and mix and match them with excerpts from other manuals.
Also available in the Learning Center are books we translate and publish on topical matters relating to women’s rights and advocacy. Our Translation Series focuses on books that have already been published and have been well-received, which we translate and disseminate to new audiences. In addition, the Learning Center provides access to anthologies and other books published by university presses.
