Often the links between different forms of discrimination are not recognised.

It's important that organisations identify all ways in which people can be marginalised in order that everyone is given equality of opportunity. This is why Sense International has chosen to address the issue of gender in its programmes.

We are currently holding a gender awareness training workshop for all East Africa staff, following a gender review of our community-based education programme in East Africa.

A wall with ideas from the workshop on gender awarenessThe purpose of both the review and the training is to make sure our programme is responding to the needs of both sexes, and to bring gender awareness to everything we do, including our management practices and the development of new projects.

A gender training manual is also being produced to enable us to train staff in our other country programmes.
