Apply for Asia's 1st Women’s Institute on Leadership & Development program!

Mobility International USA is currently accepting applications from women with disabilities in India, Nepal, Sri Lanka and China for the Regional Women’s Institute on Leadership and Development (WILD). This is the first time the program is being held in Asia.

Deadline to apply for WILD is 5 February, 2018

16 women with disabilities from China, India, Nepal, and Sri Lanka will be selected to participate in the eight-day WILD program that is scheduled to be held from 23 to 30 May, 2018 in Sri Lanka. The aim is to share experiences, look into strategies, build a regional network of support, and together develop plans to promote inclusion of women with disabilities in community efforts.

As part of the training, a one-day Gender, Disability and Development Institute (GDDI) will bring together representatives from development, social justice and philanthropic organisations with WILD participants in dialogues and action planning to ensure participation of women with disabilities in the development process.

Regional participants will receive small grants to support implementation of WILD workshops for other women and girls with disabilities in their communities.
