Education underpins the focus of GWM as the vehicle through which people are empowered to break out of poverty cycles through a new life of sustainable and fulfilling achievements.

Currently education and training is undertaken in all sectors including:

  • Community development – through our facilitators training.
  • WASH – we partner with Centre for Affordable Water and Sanitation Technology (Canada) to deliver ongoing training to communities.
  • Health – GWM deliver training in specialist maternal health care through our qualified Australian trained sonographer.
  • We partner with a local training school for health care workers, through a 6 month training course with basic medical knowledge and the capacity to be able to deliver a baby, a critical skill particularly in remote rural areas. 
  • Peacebuilding which includes the training and equipping of village leaders as ‘everyday peacemakers’ rather than a top down approach from government, which has proven to be unsustainable.
