The Labour Party’s Westminster Foundation for Democracy Programme in 2017-18 continued to emphasise inclusivity and equality, A World for the Many, Not the Few, develop the capacity of partners and encourage regional co-operation.
Highlights of the year...
We continued to support the Women’s Academy for Africa, a regional network of women from political parties across Africa that offers a rolling programme of training to its members with a view to increasing the number of women in public and elected positions.
This year's annual political Summer Academy for young social democrats from Eastern Europe and the South Caucasus offered skills trainings on a range of subjects including policy development, campaigning and communications methods.
In the Middle East and North Africa, the Future Leaders Alumni event provided beneficiaries with the opportunity to discuss how they strengthened their regional networks and continue to share knowledge and experiences with each other as a result of the training received. This cycle of the Future Leaders programme trained over 68 youth wing leaders from across the region in campaign, communication and networking skills.
