    The ATENEA School provides teaching and training spaces in horizontal and collective leadership, which enable women to be peacebuilders and recognize themselves as subjects with rights to take decisions, increase their self-confidence and influence social change.

    It gives Colombian women a space where they can be trained and sensitized, share stories and experiences, making their voices known as empowered women.

    The ATENEA School has been running since 2008 and has the active participation of women who decided to empower themselves, know and make their rights enforceable, multiply what they have learned and be leaders.

    Each new class completes 3 or 4 modules for a total of 27 or 36 hours of education. Modules offered to date include:
    Human Rights. Women learn about the laws designed to safeguard their freedom and dignity. By learning about their own civil rights, students gain the confidence to advocate for gender equality and to participate more fully in social, political, and community life. Duration: 9 hours.
    Political Advocacy. Students learn the importance of organizing with other women and with all people to affect change. This module reviews the different mechanisms and tools available to women and shows them how to demand their rights. The module emphasizes the importance of women expressing their opinions in order to affect political decision-making. Students learn skills to help them advocate for change not only at the political level, but at the communal and personal level. Duration: 9 hours.
    Women in Peacebuilding. Students learn about the key role women play in preventing conflict and ensuring stable and lasting peace. They learn that their participation and leadership is essential in the pursuit of a more just society.

    UN Resolution 1325.

This module teaches women how to use UN Resolution 1325 as a tool to propose and implement public policy to address their specific needs. The goal is to empower women to turn their ideas into public interventions to build a society that is more equal and free from violence. Duration: 9 hours.
    Sexual and Reproductive Health. This module explores interpersonal feelings, communication, pleasure, affection, and feeling good about oneself. Women are encouraged to examine their own bodies and sexuality, and to recognize their bodies as personal territory.

    Trafficking in Women.This module reviews the crime of human trafficking, with an emphasis on women, with the aim of raising public awareness and improving protection.

    Gender-Based Violence. In this module, women learn about different types of violence and examine gender-based violence as one of the most harmful kinds. Students learn about gender equality through a theoretical and practical lens, and learn how patriarchal attitudes can result in violence. Through an emphasis on sisterhood, history, and the political participation of women, this module shows students how to recognize and respond to harmful attitudes towards women in everyday life. Duration: 9 hours.

      Las mujeres son un recurso clave para promover la paz y la estabilidad: deben poder ser multiplicadoras de conocimientos que les permiten, a ellas y a otras lideresas, entablar diálogos políticos con la institucionalidad e incidir para potenciar las agendas de paz de las mujeres en sus propios territorios.
