The Women's Programme is back with a new Autumn/Winter programme during the pandemic
Covid 19 is changing the way we live and work. Unfortunately, we had to cancel all the planned courses of the Women's Programme in spring and summer 2020. Now we are back on track with a new programme for Autumn/Winter for all women in DLR County. Parts of the Programme will be organised in Community Centres with capacity to accomodate bigger groups while still observing the government requirements of social distancing of 2 metres.
If government guidelines change we have to continue classes inline via Zoom.

Please feel free to contact the Women's Programme by phone on 087 720 3665 (Rafika) and on 087 6128740 (Daniela) if you have any questions.
Stay safe and take care of yourself!
