ABOUT THE COURSE
This three day course will provide the knowledge and tools to help mainstream gender, age and disability into all interventions so that organizations move beyond simply the desire to be inclusive and into the reality of meeting minimum standards of inclusion. This should result in building better programmes which reduce risks faced by vulnerable groups and respond to those most in need.
