Orientation of non teaching staff in addressing SGBV and SRHR

On the 23rd of October 2020 FAWEZI held a workshop with the non-teaching staff in primary and secondary schools from Muzarabani District.  The Training focused on identification, reporting, and responding to Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV), Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) and Harmful practices. The training was done in line with the project “Prevention and Social Norms to End Violence Against Women and Girls- Spotlight Initiative”

Amplifying our voice against School Related Gender Based Violence (SRGBV) -16 Days of Activism against GBV.

The Forum for African Women Educationalists – Zimbabwe Chapter (FAWEZI) joins in the observance of the 16 Days of Activism against Gender Based Violence (GBV). 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence is an international campaign to challenge violence against women and girls. The campaign runs every year from 25 November from the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to 10 December the Human Rights Day. The 2018 theme is ‘End Violence in the world of work’.

With this in mind one would then ask – ‘how safe are Zimbabwean women in the Workplace?’ More importantly for FAWEZI ‘how safe are girls and women in our schools?’  As an organisation that works mainly to reduce gender disparities in education, our campaign this year is inclined to School Related Gender Based Violence (SRGBV). Female administrators, teachers, non –teaching staff and learners can be victims or perpetrators of SRGBV. Read more
