Resources for Women

This section - which is aimed at both trainers and end users - offers links to resources specifically targeted at women. The resources are divided into the following categories:

"Target audience" under each listing tells you whether the resource is aimed at end-users ("General"), end-users and trainers ("General and Trainers") or only at Trainers. Resources designated as aimed at trainers include, for example, workshop curricula, PowerPoint presentations and worksheets.

For additional resources which are not specifically women-focussed use the navigation panel on the left-hand side of this page.

This section was developed by South African Women'sNet and the APC Women's Networking Support Programme.
