We are delighted to contact you today with details about our next annual International Human Rights Training Program. We are looking forward to another inspiring three-week program and the opportunity to meet around 90 participants from about 50 different countries. 
We are inviting you to forward the Application Form, Program Information and Memorandum of Agreement to your international network of human rights activists and encourage organizations who you think could benefit from the program to apply. It is also a good opportunity to share with your network your personal experience at the IHRTP. We always appreciate recommendations from people who have experienced the IHRTP
In circulating the information please bear in mind that the IHRTP is intended for human rights workers and educators from non-governmental organizations, National Human Rights Institutions, government bodies and educational institutions. The goal of the IHRTP is to strengthen the capacity of human rights organizations to undertake human rights education efforts aimed at building a global culture of human rights. The curriculum is based on principles of adult experiential learning in which participants and facilitators engage in a process of mutual teaching and learning. The Program Information provides a detailed description of the Program. 
We received more than 850 applications for the 2012 IHRTP and it is therefore unlikely that we will have enough spaces for all of the qualified candidates. The Equitas Selection Committee gives priority to the organisations best able to demonstrate their commitment and effectiveness in relation to human rights promotion and education. Consideration is also given to overall gender balance, geographic representation and the availability of bursaries. 
Please note that the deadline for receiving international applications is November 21, 2012 and that only the 2013 Application Forms will be accepted.
