“Peers for Equality - Developing capacities for tackling gender based discrimination”,(589795-EPP-1-2017-1-RO-EPPKA2-CBY-ACPALA)

The training activity took place
in Romania, Bucharest
organised by Asociatia Ofensiva Tinerilor
27 sept-28 sept 2018, 24-26 oct. 2018

Aims & objectives

“Peers for Equality” is a new European project funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Commission (KA2 Capacity Building in the Field of Youth) coordinated by Ofensiva Tinerilor (Romania) in partnership with the European Peer Training Organisation (EPTO, Belgium) and Y-PEER Kyrgyzstan. It aims at developing the capacity of peer education platforms and NGOs for reducing gender-based discrimination. To achieve this, the partners will design a new peer education programme by exchanging, adapting and creating non-formal methods and tools which can be used in youth work. This programme will be put together in a new toolkit, upon which a group of 22 participants will be trained through 3 mobilities:
a “thematic awareness training” (TAT) in April 2018 in Romania;
a “train-the-trainer” (TTT) training in June 2018 in Kyrgyzstan;
a “Peers-To-Professionals” (PTP) training in December 2018 in Belgium.

Between the mobilities, participants will be asked to practice what they have learned by facilitating workshops tackling gender based discrimination in youth environments:
6-hour practice between the TAT and the TTT;
24-hour practice between the TTT and the PTP.
