Conservation and Leadership Training for Women in the Quezon Region, Philippines

In response to the environmental and gender equality challenges in the Philippines, Greenseed is committed to implementing a program that addresses both dimensions effectively.

The creation of women's groups within the conservation context has proven successful in combating gender discrimination while promoting environmental protection. The WePhili program is designed to harness this success by establishing a network of women trained in conservation and leadership, ensuring empowerment and sustainability in the region.

To achieve this goal, a training program led by women specializing in conservation and leadership will be implemented. Accommodation and meals will be provided for program participants. Over the course of one year, they will receive training enabling them to launch their own conservation programs or integrate into existing structures. It's important to note that the conservation training and leadership curriculum has been co-created with our implementing partner, ensuring relevance and effectiveness in addressing local challenges.
