Women of the World: A Volunteer Peer Facilitator Training Manual
The Women of the World (WOW) Peer Facilitators Training Manual was developed in accordance with the London InterCommunity Health Centre’s core principles of health promotion and community development. This manual has been informed over many years by community conversations and community practice among Health Centre staff and immigrant women and their families here in London, Ontario. For immigrant women, the 12 week Peer Facilitator training facilitates a process where they begin to affirm their ability to bring about change in their world. This is about self-empowerment and community building. It is our hope that women who experience this training will see a more hopeful and positive future for themselves, their families and their communities in Canada.

As of March 2011 the Handbook is available in English, French and Spanish.
