As part of GNWP’s efforts to empower young women and girls in vulnerable situations to be positive role models in their communities, a five-day training for young women and girls was organized in Indonesia in November 2017, and in Bangladesh in October 2018 under its Girl Ambassadors for Peace (GA4P) program. This toolkit is a compilation of the materials that GNWP used for the trainings, which include modules on literacy, leadership, peacebuilding, economic empowerment, and the use of media, theater and information and communication technologies. The toolkit also features additional resources, such as background materials for the facilitator and exercises that young women and girls can use when they organize literacy and economic empowerment trainings in villages.
