This curriculum is based on participatory learning and covers a broad range of issues that have been identified as priorities for rural women. Topics include: gender roles, gender inequality, and culture; the body, sexuality, and gender based violence; communication and relationships; and HIV transmission and prevention. Sessions are structured to give participants an opportunity to strengthen confidence and skills relating to communication, critical thinking and leadership. Moreover, they are designed to complement microfinance values and principles such as mutual respect, personal responsibility, and group solidarity. Throughout Phase 1, participants are encouraged to identify both obstacles and opportunities for engaging with men and youth in their communities.
