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

On November 14, 2014, over 400 feminist women activists working on women's rights will meet in Bangkok at the Asia-Pacific CSO Forum on Beijing+20 (APCSOB20) to discuss what their governments have done to achieve gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls. Activists from across the region will note if the reported progress by States has been sufficient and what States should be doing to tackle the challenges that remain on the 12 critical areas of concern identified twenty years ago in the Beijing Platform for Action (BPfA).
