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.

TaLI AND THE WOMEN'S TRUST HOST A GBV MEDIA TRAINING

TaLI AND THE WOMEN'S TRUST HOST A GBV MEDIA TRAINING

Today TaLI along with The Women's Trust in Partnership with UN Women held a Media training on issues around Gender and Gender Based Violence.

It was a very open participatory training with media minds bringing together their different perspectives. A few interesting points were brought to light that were of great importance which included;

'When a society deems something to be normal it creates systems to reinforce that belief. Media along with Education and religion are some of the systems that that society uses. What we must bare in mind that society is not always right.'

Media plays a very important role in how society perceives difference situations and thus it is of utmost importance that members of the media are responsibility in their reporting so that they influence positive change in society.

MY TaLI EXPERIENCE - EDNA MUGWAGWA

MY TaLI EXPERIENCE - EDNA MUGWAGWA

"I'm not gonna lie; before I was welcomed at TaLI, the organisation was not on my radar. However, it was my loss for not knowing about this incredible organisation, its awesome members and its extraordinary work in ensuring safe environments for girl children.

In the months leading up to my work experience at TaLI, I led a simple–dare I say tedious– life. I live with my family in Geneva, Switzerland and about a few weeks ago I finished writing my IGCSE exams which are equivalent to O Levels and something I would prefer not to think about. My family moved to Geneva when I was 11 years old and I now attend an international school called 'Institut International de Lancy'. After finishing my exams, my school required me to undergo one week's worth of work experience and a friend of my father got me into contact with the director of TaLI, Miss Mashayamombe. Fortunately, Miss Mashayamombe kindly accepted me into her organisation.

Working at TaLI has been eye-opening. Not only did I learn about the gravity of issues such as child marriages (in light of the Tomana scandal), but I also learnt about the importance of working together in a team, communication and sharing ideas. Despite the workload, I thoroughly enjoyed my work experience at Tag a Life International. I wish the organisation and its members a marvellous 5th anniversary and good fortune in the coming years. #TaLIat5"
