OPAWC members participated in a three day seminar held by the Afghan Women Network (AWN).

In this seminar OPAWC staff learned the concept of advocacy: how to pursue justice, how to eliminate the exemption of abusers and criminals form, how to give psychological comfort to the victims and how to secure a safe community and implement the law. They were instructed in the three aspects of advocacy: Advocacy for the affected people, advocacy with affected people and advocacy through the people.

 

OPAWC's  aim for sending the staff to such seminars is to enhance the level of their awareness regarding advocacy in order to use it as a tool to generate positive changes in the lives of the people and to acquire knowledge how to defend those with problems.

This seminar was very useful, and OPAWC  wants to convey these issues to all women in the through their instructors.
