Improving the political participation of young women - PatHERways Handbook

PatHERways Handbook.PNG

PatHERWays Handbook comprises the approach, methodologies and results that emerged from the knowledge, skills and learning experiences from dozens of educators, youth workers and youth leaders - from Cape Verde, East Timor, France, Mozambique, Peru, Portugal and UK - participants in this project. 

PatHERways International was an 18-months project that helped us to expand our national and international work and engage young women in politics.

The handbook content has been divided into two main parts:

  • A review of the path of the project and its results; 

  • A set of practical activities that can be implemented in training events.


The handbook intends to serve as a tool for young leaders, youth workers, educators and other actors of civil society that aim to improve the political participation of young women, as well as towards young women who wish to participate more actively,.

PatHERways Handbook has been translated into 4 languages – English, French, Portuguese and Spanish – and it comprises a set of materials to support the implementation of activities.
