In 2011, the 'Global Partnership to End Violence Against Women' continued with two programs: the Avon International NGO Mentoring Program in the U.S., and a regional follow-up training in South Africa planned for the African delegations of the Partnership in September. The program will provide participants with specific knowledge, skills, and relationships that will enhance their professional development, their respective NGOs, and the communities they serve.
In August 2011, in partnership with the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, AusAID, and the Asian Development Bank, Vital Voices will launch a 19-month program to empower 13 country delegations to implement a specific project in one of three issue areas: influencing legislative and policy change to improve women's labor force participation; working to remove legal impediments to women's entrepreneurship, and advancing young women's leadership and mentorship in public life. In addtion, the program 'Young Women Leaders Building Peace and Prosperity' continued with a program in Haifa, Israel in April 2011, and the Latin America Caribbean Businesswomen's Network (LAC BWN) was launched in Argentina, Nicaragua, and Guatemala in June 2011.
