Women without Borders (WwB) convened new and veteran MotherSchools teachers from Belgium, Sweden, England, Nigeria and Kashmir gathered in Vienna for an international train-the-teacher workshop. WwB held the three-day training to foster an exchange of best practices and help to prepare for new MotherSchools roll-outs in 2016. Women without Borders’ trainers guided the twenty-one participants through the MotherSchools Manual to equip soon-to-be and already established teachers for leading further MotherSchools groups in their communities. This was the first international convergence of MotherSchools representatives, and helped to plant the roots for the growing MotherSchools global network.
