1. About ABA ROLI

The American Bar Association Rule of Law Initiative (ABA ROLI) is dedicated to promoting legal reform efforts in more than 100 countries around the world. For 30 years, ABA ROLI has sought to strengthen legal institutions, support legal professionals, foster respect for human rights, and advance public understanding of the law and citizen rights. In collaboration with government agencies, the judiciary, lawyers, bar associations, legislatures, and civil society, we design programs that are responsive to local needs and that prioritize sustainable solutions to pressing rule of law challenges. The ABA ROLI is implementing a project in Sudan focusing on capacity support for lawyers, community leaders and civil society from diverse communities in promoting and protecting freedom of religion and belief. ABA ROLI works in partnership with several Sudanese and international organizations on this program.

2. The Training of Trainers

ABA ROLI is organizing a 3-day training of trainer’s (TOT) workshop for 20 facilitators including activists, local community leaders and civil society actors who will be selected to participate in the TOT of awareness raising on Freedom of Religion and Belief (FORB) and concepts of citizenship. The TOT is conducted to prepare the 20 facilitators comprising Sudanese NGOs, local leaders, and independent activists to conduct a series of awareness raising and education sessions for Sudanese communities in Sudan and the diaspora. The training of trainers will cover the legal framework and in concepts of citizenship, the facilitators will be exposed to principles, concepts and terminology in freedom of religion and belief. The facilitators will be equipped with materials and tools for effective facilitation of dialogues and sensitization sessions. A reference guide on community engagement will be developed in the TOT. The trained facilitators will increase their engagement in advocacy for religious freedoms and rights and will increase their tolerance for religious diversity in supported communities as well.
