Authors/editor(s): Suzanna George, Laura Faludi, Galuh Wandita and Maria Manuela Leong Pereira

“Chega! Women for Peace” is a training manual developed by NGO Asosiasaun Chega! Ba ita (ACbit) with inputs from Timorese women, with the technical support of UN Women in Timor-Leste, and funded by the Government of Japan.

Designed for adult learners, it provides trainers & leaders with culturally appropriate tools and expertise to deliver the principles of two important documents on peace building in Timor-Leste; The National Action Plan (NAP) on the UN Security Resolution 1325 (Women, Peace and Security) and the Chega! Report (the final report of Timor-Leste’s Truth and Reconciliation Reception).The manual also compliments other training manuals which focus on the transmission of more specific skills in leadership, mediation, conflict resolution, and trauma healing.

“Chega! Women for Peace” can be rolled out in communities in partnership with Asosiasaun Chega! Ba ita. For more information on the manual and how to deliver it amongst peers, please contact Director of ACbit Manuela Leong Pereira:
