HREP PROGRAM PARTNERS
PARTNERSHIPS WITH MUNICIPALITIES AND THE HREP PARTNERSHIP PROTOCOL
Due to political circumstances and developments in the country, WWHR-New Ways shifted its focus on to municipalities as partners for the implementation of HREP especially from 2012 onwards. Four HREP Training of Trainers (TOT) courses were therefore held in 2013, 2016 and 2017, mostly targeting women municipality employees working in the women’s counseling centers or social assistance/service units of municipalities, as a result of which we forged sustainable institutional partnerships with these municipalities. We signed protocols to further formalize some of these partnerships that are still ongoing with over 40 municipalities, most of which are Izmir-based.
