The Women's Land Rights Visiting Professional Program is cultivating a 
network of qualified professionals who are strongly committed to 
strengthening women's land rights.  The program will boost visiting 
professionals' capacity to effectively strengthen women's land rights, 
foster motivation and ability to actively participate in this network, 
and reinforce the commitment to working on women's land rights.

Landesa's experience working with multi-cultural programs suggests that 
a hands-on, intensive program working alongside peers from different 
countries and with different fields of expertise will be beneficial to 
all parties.  It will create a fertile ground for learning and will 
promote the level of group cohesion required to sustain the long-lasting 
network of professionals we aim to develop.

The Women's Land Rights Visiting Professionals program is an intensive 
six-week session for practitioners, activists, and government 
professionals conducted at Landesa's office in Seattle.  This experience 
is intended to boost their capabilities by:

    * Enhancing their understanding of the challenges to strengthening
      women's land rights by identifying what the problems are and how
      they fit into the larger picture, both in relation to other
      development issues and in relation to what is taking place in
      other geographic or political regions;
    * Expanding the set of options, approaches and potential solutions
      they can consider by learning from what has been tried in other
      settings, by learning from solutions to different-but-related
      problems, by becoming part of a network of colleagues who can act
      as a resource, and by being encouraged to think creatively; and
    * Improving their effectiveness at addressing women's land rights'
      challenges by strengthening their leadership, managerial, and
      written and verbal communication skills.

Landesa will continue the knowledge transfer and mentor engagement with 
each visiting professional on one project up to one year after their 
returning to their home countries.

We expect our first group in September 2012.
