Khujand, Tajikistan, 5 June 2007 - Raising awareness of gender equality issues among civil servants and providing them with gender analysis tools for their everyday work are the aims of a five-day OSCE-supported training course which started in Khujand today.

"The project, which now enters its third year, has been particularly successful thanks to productive co-operation with the Tajik Government Civil Service Training Institute. Together with the Institute, we trained more than 200 civil servants last year and are planning to train at least 100 this year. We also plan to train 25 secondary school directors on how to mainstream gender into the work of schools," said Graziella Piga, Gender Issues Officer in the OSCE Center in Dushanbe.

Similar courses are planned to take place later this year.
