Rozaria Memorial Trust Is Hosting 80 Girls From Shamva and Murewa to Commemorate The 16 Days Of Activism
Rozaria Memorial Trust is currently hosting 80 girls from Shamva and Murewa to commemorate the 16 days of activism. Today night will be the Binti dialogues where the girls will share their experiences, and network with others in a safe and friendly environment. The dialogues will be hosted around the fireplace, and they will be able to share and learn in an informal atmosphere.
The event will reach a peak with the official ceremony hosted at Magaya primary school tomorrow.
The 16 Days of Activism is an international campaign to end Gender Based Violence against young girls and women. The problem of GBV is multifaceted and one way that the Trust aims to combat it is through awareness and educational campaigns. The current initiative will give the girls insight on how to protect themselves, as well as boost their self esteem and knowledge.
As a Trust we are committed to pushing grassroots initiatives such as these to combat problems we face in our communities. It is through social actions and education that problems facing young women and girls can be shed light upon and combated.
The challenge of Gender Based Violence is a social one and as such it takes the whole community to solve it. This however does not mean on a personal level nothing can be done. As an individual you could spread the message behind the 16 days of activism, under the theme “Leave No One Behind: End Violence against Women and Girls”
