Project objective

– increase the number of people who access IGLYO’s capacity building opportunities

– increase the diversity of topics and skills that IGLYO provides as capacity building

– create opportunities for peer-learning and peer support in a community of learning.



IGLYO operates its own website,, based on WordPress, which has a specific visual design and identity. The online learning platform should be part of this website and reflect its visual identity.
