This is the sixth (6th) time that we are offering this course in the last

two (2) years.  The five (5) batches of MGGR trainings were successfully

held last February, June, October of 2004 and January, October 2005 at the

CAPWIP Institute for Gender, Governance and Leadership (CIGGL) located at

Hostelling (HI) Manila, 4227-4229 Tomas Claudio Street, Baclaran, Paranaque

City, Philippines. These trainings were attended by participants from

different countries in Asia, Pacific, Africa and Europe.  In all the five

(5) trainings that we have conducted, the participants have continually

rated the training highly and useful for their organizations.


This training course has been revised and redesigned based on the feedback

from previous trainings. The course has been expanded to a six-day course

(originally designed for 3 days) and the course is now heavy on case studies

and field trips. The training is offered and designed for a small group of

about 25 to 30 participants.


The registration fee for the six-day training is US$1,500 for single room

accommodations and US$1,300 for twin room sharing accommodations (two

persons in one room). We are sending you the detailed information sheet and

registration form as an attachment to this email.  The training will be held

on February 19-24, 2007. However, the participants will be requested to be

in Manila the day before, February 18, 2007 and leave Manila only on

February 25, 2007. These extended stay are already included in the fee.


We hope that your organization can send participants to this training. Let

us join hands in promoting gender responsive governance through

transformative leadership and citizenship. We are looking forward to your
