Team Begins Follow-up Evaluations with Community Trainers
By Jamie Persons - Global Program Associate
We are pleased to provide an update on the work of APROFER as well as an update on the work of Global Grassroots to support change agent teams like APROFER more broadly:
Since they began, APROFER has trained 75 community members on gender equality and property rights; each trainee then serves as a representative to offer trainings in his or her home community. The APROFER team is in the process of conducting a follow-up evaluation with their most recent cohort of community trainers in order to assess their current impact. We will be thrilled to share their impact once they have compiled the results of their training.
GLOBAL GRASSROOTS UPDATE
Global Grassroots is making innovative efforts to meet the growing demand for our programs and has created exciting new partnerships to catalyze conscious social change around the globe:
We are piloting a new “uAcademy” bootcamp for juniors and seniors at Dartmouth College this fall, through a partnership with the Dickey Center for International Understanding and the Rockefeller Center for Public Policy. This program will enable students to learn and apply our methodology of Conscious Social Change, driving social change in their home communities and abroad. This engaging new course represents a unique fusion of personal leadership, global citizenship, social entrepreneurship, and international development. We are thrilled to partner with Dartmouth College, and we hope to offer our workshops to more universities next spring!
We are currently piloting our “eAcademy” e-learning program with women’s groups in ten countries and are preparing to publically launch the platform in early 2013. This pioneering program will allow women’s groups in developing countries around the world to access our social entrepreneurship training online for free. Not only will these women be equipped to drive change in their own communities, but they will also become part of our global network of grassroots change agents, with access to ideas and best practices shared by other women around the globe. Stay tuned for our public launch.
Beginning in their own communities, Global Grassroots’ change agents are working building a culture that values, supports and empowers girls and women worldwide.
