IFES Hosts Capacity-Building Workshop For Yemens Women Department
24 Jan 2009
The Women's Department within Yemen's Supreme Commission for Elections and Referendum (SCER) was established in 2005 to encourage access for women to all stages of the electoral process. IFES-Yemen is helping to strengthen the capacity of the SCER Women’s Department, the first of its kind in the region, to achieve its mandate by providing training workshops. These images were taken during the four workshops that addressed topics such as budgeting and proposal writing, organizational management skills, communicating issues of gender, and developing materials to promote women's electoral participation.
