Partner Tours and Delegations
KAIROS’ Women of Courage partner tours have given Canadians from coast to coast the chance to meet our courageous partners and to amplify the voices of human rights defenders, Indigenous women and peacebuilders from our local communities and across the globe. Participants identify opportunities for advocacy to end violence against women and to promote women’s rights.
KAIROS also organizes delegations of Canadians to visit partners and to participate in international events and fora. Delegations deepen understanding of these issues, provide accompaniment and witness to partners’ work, and strengthen our advocacy and education work in Canada.
