This is the seventh (7th) time that we are offering this course in the last three (3) years. The six (6) batches of MGGR trainings were successfully held last February, June, October of 2004 and January, October 2005 and February 2007 at the CAPWIP Institute for Gender, Governance and Leadership (CIGGL) located at Hostelling (HI) Manila, 4227-4229 Tomas Claudio Street, Baclaran, Paranaque City, Philippines. These trainings were attended by participants from different countries in Asia, Pacific, Africa and Europe. In all the six (6) trainings that we have conducted, the participants have continually rated the training highly and useful for their organizations.
This training course has been revised and redesigned based on the feedback from previous trainings. The course has been expanded to a six-day course (originally designed for 3 days) and the course is now heavy on case studies and field trips. The training is offered and designed for a small group of about 25 to 35 participants.
The registration fee for the six-day training is US$1,600 for single room accommodations and US$1,350 for twin room sharing accommodations (two persons in one room). We are sending you the detailed information sheet and registration form as an attachment to this email. The training will be held on June 24-30, 2007. However, the participants will be requested to be in Manila the day before, June 23, 2007 and leave Manila only on July 1, 2007. These extended stay are already included in the fee.
