This page is dedicated to the training and capacity building of activists. Here you can find all the courses that we provide, the courses provided by our partner organisations and those suggested by you, the audience of Activist Handbook.
This is our attempt at peer to peer education. We believe in sharing knowledge and learning from each other which is why our courses are freely available to anyone who wants to follow. On top of that, they are available in video format as well, all the handouts and materials needed for the courses at Rebel Academy are stored on our website.
