Quote: Because of [this educational programme] I confirmed to myself that what I really want to do and why. You gave a value to us and all the time encouraged us to be in frontline. I understood that there are some people that they will not stop working towards peace and security.

Quote: This was an absolutely game-changing experience. I have taken multiple online certificate courses, but never have I experienced such an engaging program. Despite being in the (mostly) disarmament field for multiple years now, I have still learned so much - from the lessons, speakers but also from the peers in our weekly breakout sessions. It truly was such an honor to be a part of this.

Quote: I would like to thank everyone for making this very organized and enlightening training programme happen and mostly for focusing on the gender equality issue by deciding to accept mainly women to the training and giving them a chance to participate in the in-person training. There is a huge need for female engagement in emerging issues such as arms control and disarmament!
