The Swallows regional partners meeting was hosted by Keystone Foundation from 27th to 30th November at the Keystone campus. 35 participants attended consisting of partners from Bangladesh, India and Sweden.
Engendering mobilization and sustainable social change was the theme for the four days. Plenary sessions on gender movements, stories from the field and group work to look at three themes – violence against women, access issues and leadership. A session on post elections analysis in all three countries was interesting. The participants made a three year gender gender action plan which needs to be implemented.
