The service provides monthly scholarships as well as training and support in a wide range of subjects including gender equality, women’s rights, sexual and reproductive health, community management, photography and video. Tutors, food, accommodation and medical and psychological care are also available.
Tickets cost $1800, $1200, $800, or $500 and can be purchased from the theatre box office.
