FAWEZI recently hosted Community Sensitization workshops in both Shamva and Chitugwiza Districts. These workshops were through our program ‘Empowered Adolescents for Improved Quality of Life.’
During the community sensitization workshops, FAWEZI focused on our “Tuseme” (Let us speak) model of using drama to explain issues in our lives, in this case, to explain Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG).
During the workshops, FAWEZI and participants unpacked Laws and Practices around VAWG, and spoke about what needs to change in order to see a decrease in VAWG. Project officer Ruru Chibaya gave a background on FAWEZI and facilitated dialogue throughout the workshops. Mr Mutasa from the Ministry of Women’s Affairs, Community, Small and Medium Enterprises, gave a presentation on life skills to the participants. FAWEZI partners with ActionAid Zimbabwe to implement this program.
