At the Tostan Training Center (TTC), Tostan hosts international training courses on its human rights-based approach to community-led development in English and French. Our human rights-based education model has been consistently developed and updated in response to feedback from thousands of communities in different socio-cultural African contexts over the past 20 years.

Recognizing its proven positive effects for community-led development, an increasing number of community activists, members of local, national and international organizations, of governments, as well as representatives from academia and the media have expressed an interest in further information and training on the Tostan model.

We have developed a unique set of trainings that use a participatory, learner-centered approach that draws its strength from the expertise of trainers with extensive experience in rural Africa, implementing the Tostan Community Empowerment Program. Our trainings serve individuals and groups who share a commitment to human dignity, transformative learning, holistic empowerment, and collective action.

“One of the most amazing things about this training was bringing together all these amazing individuals from a variety of backgrounds, with a variety of experience and being able to interact with everyone, and share each other’s knowledge and be able to learn from each other.”
