ILGA-Europe Capacity Building Seminar
Dear members of ILGA-Europe:
We are writing to invite you to take part in the second phase of ILGA-Europe’s capacity building seminars, which will take place in
Ljubljana, Slovenia on 20-21 of April. There will be two seminars organized simultaneously on the subjects of fundraising and human rights monitoring.
The Human Rights Monitoring seminar is targeted at participants with little or no experience in this area. It aims to introduce human rights monitoring and, as important part of it, documentation of human rights violations as a practical tool for LGBT activists. External experts and ILGA-Europe staff will share their experience on how to monitor and gather evidence, how to document human rights violations and finally how to use the information to lobby both national governments and international organisations.
The Fundraising seminar is targeted at participants that may have some experience but want to deepen their knowledge on raising funds and understanding funders’ mentality. Together with external experts, participants will have the opportunity to improve their skills in writing project proposals and communication with funders, explore alternative ways of fundraising. The seminar will be practically-focused. It aims to give participants concrete advice and realistic tools on how to raise money for their organisations.
Priority will be given to delegates from ILGA-Europe member organizations and LGBT initiative groups from the following countries:
Bosnia and Herzegovina,
Spain. Delegates from other countries may also apply and will be awarded scholarships on the basis of availability.
ILGA-Europe can provide scholarships, which will cover travel, accommodation and meals for a total of 50 participants.
If you are interested in attending the seminars, please fill in the application form attached and send it to Maxim Anmeghichean at: firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also send additional information or requests to the above e-mail address. The deadline for applications is March 10.
