IMAGINE: A Global Initiative for the Empowerment of Women

Commitment by

Empowerment Institute

In 2014, The Empowerment Institute committed to train 20 leaders of developing-world women's empowerment NGOs through its IMAGINE certification program. This program both trains participants to envision and create new possibilities for their lives by participating in a four-day personal agency training program called the Empowerment Workshop, while also teaching them to conduct the Workshop for others. Utilizing a 'train the trainer' model, the Empowerment Institute will train these 20 women NGO leaders to facilitate the four-day Empowerment Workshop for the women in the communities they serve, and will support the leaders and their trainees in perpetuating the training with others. Workshop participants will experience an increase in personal agency, which leads to improved income, health, and relationships, as well as high levels of hope for their futures; leading to greater efficacy in the NGOs' overall efforts to empower the women in their communities.
