A Learning Exchange in Guangzhou, China brought together EMpower’s China-based grantee partners: Qi Chuang, Included and Yunnan Peili Youth Development Center.

This exchange emphasized the importance of gender awareness in programs for youth, provided information on the situation of girls and women in China and helped participants to learn about effective communication to amplify girls’ voices.
