The fifth WID/GAD gender training with World of Women Social Union took place on Sunday, June 10th in Sheki. This session kicked off the “First Stride Women’s Leadership Camp” which was held by G.E.M.I. (Youth and Scientific Cultural Public Union). There were 29 participants, and G.E.M.I. is planning to invite the trainers back in August in order to continue presenting on gender awareness and development. Special thanks to PCV Amanda Zeidan who reached out to WID/GAD in order to arrange this training in Sheki.
