DAWN Training Institute (DTI)
The DAWN Training Institute (DTI) is a formal arena through which DAWN's women share with younger feminists from the South, the accumulated knowledge, analyses, debates and experiences of DAWN in the past years and to also provide DAWN a way of regeneration through the recruitment of the graduates into DAWN's global and regional work.
Since 2003, DAWN has held four DAWN Training Institutes (DTIs). The first one took place in Bangalore, India (2003), the second one in Montevideo, Uruguay (2005), the third one in Cape Town, South Africa (2007) and the fourth one in Siem Reap, Cambodia (2011). DTIs are held for three weeks, where young feminists are exposed to theory, discussions and inter-active processes related to feminism, feminist movements, women’s rights, and local and global strategies to achieve social justice. DAWN’s objectives for the institutes are to share the experiences of the organization with the next generation of young activists and to contribute towards building a sustainable movement who sees the world from a feminist perspective
