Marinda and colleagues, thank you for all the support you rendered. Although I did not have a chance to meet you personally, I sometimes felt we have actually met”. - Erica Shilongo
“I learned a lot from the course and I have now got a better insight about many issues and concepts concerning gender”. - Ms Saara S Aveshe Mungungu (Programme Developer – NAMCOL)
“It has been very enriching to work on this course and with SADC/UP. Thank you for your continuous support”. - Mohun Satish (Mauritius Institute of Education)
