A number of regional WOW Training Boards are currently being established in the 4 WOW Sub-regions. The first WOW Regional Training Board Meeting took place in Amman, Jordan for the Middle East region on 10-11 November and the WOW Training Board Meeting for Eastern and Southern Africa will be taking place in Entebbe, Uganda in December.
The task of each Regional Training Board is to oversee and guide the regional customization and eventual implementation of the WOW Training & Awareness Raising Framework. The Training Boards oversee and help guide the regional WOW teams at the 4 Regional Centres in their task of translating the wider Training & Awareness Raising Framework to fit the specific needs and training priorities of their respective region. In addition, the Training Boards will also assist sub-regional stakeholders in raising local funds for the implementation of the programmes, to help establish long-term fundraising strategy and to oversee demonstration projects within the region.
