Do you have a stirring to start a conversation about the things we don’t talk enough about? Perhaps its feminism, or equality, or how we treat marginalised members of our society. Whatever it may be, this is one conversation that you want to come to. Bring your issues, concerns and passions.

The RM150 fee includes transport, lodging and meals. Join us for a three-day two-night Feminist Camp as we discuss, talk, laugh, muse, ponder and cry our way through these issues.The fee is RM120 for those without an income.

You can also Sponsor-A-Participant for a pledged amount. We offer financial scholarships on a needs basis for this programme. For those who require financial assistance, please contact Yong Yi at 03 7877 4221 or e-mail training.programs.awam[@]gmail.com.
