Global Giving is the first and largest global crowdfunding community that connects nonprofits, donors, and companies in nearly every country around the world. We make it possible for local organizations to access the funding, tools, training, and support they need to become more effective and make our world a better place.

The money will help to fund a project that will rescue girls from abuse and provide support to survivors. Vulnerable girls often whose parents have died mostly as a result of AIDS. TaLI provides such survivors with medical assistance to prevent HIV or to provide support where they are HIV positive. We provide Counselling to victims and their parents, We rescue them from abusive environments, We report and follow abuse cases with police and support through justice system/courts and Reintegration with families.

Through this project girls will have access to Education and normal life, and being able to enjoy their Human Rights and their dignity restored.

GENDER RESPONSVE BUDGETING TRAINING WITH PAAGWA

GENDER RESPONSVE BUDGETING TRAINING WITH PAAGWA

Tag A Life International (TALI) and The Women’s Trust (TWT) , in partnership with UN Women, The Ministry of Women Affairs Gender and Community Development, Women’s Parliamentary Caucus (WPC) and the Junior Parliament (JP) have established the Advocacy Platform on Ending Violence against adolescent Girls and Young Women in Zimbabwe.The platform is comprised of 30 vibrant individuals who have committed to working together to amplify the campaign on zero tolerance to violence against girls and young women. The platform is made up of young Honorable Members of Parliament, junior members of parliament, Gender equality activists, .Media experts, religious and traditional leaders as well as young men and women representing community voices and views. The name of this group of individuals is Platform for Advocates Against Women And Child Abuse (PAAGWA).

TaLI and TWT held a training to capacitate PAAGWA members with information on Gender Responsive Budgeting (GRB). The objectives of the training were to capacitate and strengthen the knowledge of Advocacy Platform members on Gender Responsive Budgeting (GRB), to develop an Advocacy Strategy specifically for Gender Responsive Budgeting(GRB), to empower advocates with skills on advocacy and lobbying particularly on Gender Responsive Budgeting that will feed into the national budgeting process of the Zimbabwean 2016 fiscal year and to provide a space in which the Advocacy platform can meet and map out a plan for visibility.

The 3 day training was a success with the Platform members actively participating and engaging with the facilitator. As we look forward we hope that the knowledge the platform members have received will assist them in contributing towards a Gender sensitive 2016 fiscal budget.
