“My warmest greetings to Rwanda. First, I should like to express once again my
gratitude to you for the training in gender and development I received in June. It has given me a new lease of life. I have just run a small two-day workshop at which I conveyed the bulk of the training content (on gender, international gender-promotion instruments and gender analysis) to young university students doing placements at our institution. They really appreciated the training.”

2. Ahmed Bilal Mohamed Salem, Chief of the Labour Dispute Service, National Union of Mauritanian Employers, Mauritania:

“The gender and development seminar owes all its success to your competence and your organisational skills, united with your unwavering commitment to equality between men and women as two pillars of sustainable development. The methods and experiences shared during the seminar are sure to help me contribute to my organization through training. A big ‘thank you’ and keep up the good work !“
