BUILDING FEMINIST LEADERSHIP THROUGH CAPACITY BUILDING AND LEADERSHIP SUPPORT PROGRMMES
WLTC's core programme includes participatory capacity building programmes designed with accessible and cross-learning tools.
Unfortunately we had to cancel some our planned workshops etc due to the Covid-19 situation.
However, we have designed a new module that will allow us to share information and learn from each other using the limted access to technology and resources we have.
We will be sharing the content of the programmes in soon. You can learn about our previous leadership building programme

COUNSELLING AND LEGAL SUPPORT TO WOMEN FACING VIOLENCE
WLTC provides regualr counselling and legal support to women in cases of violation of women's rights.
There are reports of increasing violence against women during this period. We have been reaching out to the women through telephonic counselling and legal advice and support. Upon receiving a resuest we support a woman to find immediate security, inform police, find secure shelter and file cases if she wishes. Our women leaders in different communities in Assam also have been monitoring the situation on ground and supporting women in dealing with violence against women. You can share the numbers through this facebook post.
We organise workshops, conduct feminist researches, collectivise women, produce reports and information materials and share information for advocacy and awarness.
