The 2nd Regional Training Institute for young feminists from South and South East Asia was organized by Development Alternatives with Women for a New Era (DAWN), from the 16th – 22nd April 2009 in Manila, Philippines. Kumudini Samuel and Nilusha Hemasiri from WMC participated. Kumudini Samuel who was the DAWN South Asia coordinator participated as a resource person at the training.
The training provided young female participants from the Asian continent to share experiences and ideas of local, regional and global advocacy. The program was eventful with many of the participants taking back with them new methods of activism and the kinds of programs/campaigns they can use in their own countries, and in their areas of work.
