Training for Syrian Activists – Building an Effective Campaigning organisation

Since 2011 we have been involved in a range of activities to help ensure the Syrian activists we most actively work with are more empowered, equipped and mobilised to develop an independent civil society in Syria, take human rights messages out to a wider audience and be better enabled to use non-violent means to defend their own and others rights.

This programme of work includes providing a variety of training. We are seeking a freelance consultant to help design and facilitate a series of workshops in Turkey this August with one of the Syrian groups we work with.
