Gender Sensitisation- An Inclusive Approach
- Parent Category: ROOT
‘A Pro-active Inclusive Approach’
At TaLI we believe girls do live in communities. In these communities that is where a lot of harm, abuse, violence, inequality and all forms of violation of their rights occur. We go to the roots that socialization starts in the home and this is one of our biggest targets in terms of educating for equality and all rights for the girl child. We realize that girl children are harmed by perpetrators who are often not educated about the impact and effects of child abuse. We note that the boys today are the man of tomorrow, so to change the culture of violence and ill-treatment against the girl child, programming has to start targeting boys, man, families, and all duty bearers. Realization of girls rights mean a total protection of the girl child. At TaLi we advocate that No girl must ever be harmed, so we believe in influencing and transforming communities, men, boys, policy makers, government
and all relevant stakeholders before it even happens. We believe in change for future generations, thus the pro-active part of our strategy changing behaviors in communities. The village MUST guarantee her safety and secure her future! Therefore, we believe in a Pro-Active approach to impacting the lives of girls. We hold workshops with community members, families and other stakeholders to educate and involve them.
