If you would like to support our work, please visit our support webpage.


1. Training Programmes and Workshops

We design and facilitate training programmes that enable individuals and communities to take charge of their own lives, while respecting and cooperating with others who may be of different gender, race, sexuality or social position. We offer consciousness-raising workshops that transform victimhood and violence into agency and power, hatred into compassion and fear into united action.

We always need support and affirmations in this difficult struggle of ours. [ Engender ] continues to inspire me with the amazing work which you do.

It is encouraging and inspiring to see your work and I'm sure that many women are encouraged to work for peace by you.

Dr Kazuyo Yamane, Kochi University, Japan



Your website is fantastic. I have printed your article on gender based violence and HIV/AIDS for my students.

Ravai Marindo, PhD, University of Cape Town, South Africa



What encouraging objectives! What encouraging women and men working in the context of your NGO " Engender "! I am fascinated by … the important work you do, which I will always support as much as I can. … Engender can be ensured of my utmost respect and support!

Regine Mehl, Peace Research Information Unit, Germany



This is a great forum for issues that have so long been neglected and glossed over. As gay man and Priest, I am especially happy to see the integration of gender-related matters in a forum such as this. I am hoping that other like-minded clergy…will participate in this forum and work for greater understanding in matters that are often seen to be "hypo-normative". Well done!

Archbishop & Haaike Barnard, African Apostolic Orthodox Church
