A free two-day course for young women aged 18-25 on leadership, civic representation, confidence and communication. The goal is to encourage young women to represent and lead– at home, at work, in their community and in public life.
The programme will bring together 30-40 young women. At the end of the two days, the participants will produce media content, such as a short video, which will be released during National Democracy Week (2-6 July 2018).
Places are very limited and this high-value course is being provided free of charge.

It is up to the participants to choose the topic and messages; this may be a topic chosen by each group or a message relevant to the organisation to which they belong.
