“My name is Hind Khaled Saki, and I am a civil activist who is passionate about advocating for women's rights and resolving conflicts through local mediation. Following the 2012 revolution, I co-founded the Libyan Women's Forum with fellow civil activists, and together, we worked on various projects. However, managing the differing perspectives and ideas among our members was challenging, and we struggled to align our visions.
In 2023, I came across an announcement on social media about a governance training organized by the Resource Centre for Civil Society Organizations part of Linataawan project. I enrolled in the program, not realizing that it was exactly what our forum needed to evaluate and strengthen our institution. Through the training, I gained a deeper understanding of the importance of governance in organizations and institutions. Establishing clear systems and regulations to organize the work of departments and individuals is crucial for an organization's success. The trainer encouraged us to apply the concepts of governance in our own institutions, and I found this advice particularly helpful. It enabled me to evaluate the Libyan Women's Forum and develop a solid foundation for our organization's structure, administration, and finances.
The Resource Centre has continued to provide guidance and support, and I am grateful for this opportunity to learn and grow. I am excited about the vast resources offered by the Resource Centre and believe that all civil society organizations in Libya would benefit from their services. Together, we can elevate civil work in Libya and make a meaningful impact in our communities.”
