Girlchildcreativity Project is complimenting GBV activities in Zimbabwe in 2016 by distributing GBV advocacy and information material sent to a number of Women and girl child centered projects around Zimbabwe and other South African Countries. GirlChildCreativity also received the Advocacy Kit from the Network which based in Uganda. The Kit includes thematic areas of the campaign in 2016 which says Breaking Silence, Breaking Barriers for the safety of girl child education.
The Kit is composed of the GBV prevention ribbons inscribed with GBV prevention words, Posters with Images of school going girls as well as detailed information packs about the GBV prevention information and themes for 2016. The Kit is very informative.
The GirlchildCreativity Project led by its founder Mbizo Chirasha are busy sharing this valuable material in Zimbabwe with a number of institutions , programs and organizations.
On the 22nd of November 2016 , the GirlchildCreativity Project Visited the Budiriro 5 Satellite Clinic located in the High density suburbs of Harare and gave a few insights on the importance of GBV prevention campaign before giving out the posters , ribbons and the discussion guide to the nurses , patients and other community based health workers.
On the 23rd of November , the GirlchildCreativity met with the Leadership from Shurugwi District Ward 21 , Midlands Province of Harare to give and run a small awareness workshop to students of Dorset Secondary School. So the Ward 21 Leadership led by Silivia Ncube will run a small awareness workshop and distribute the kit to the School and Teachers on the Thursday the 1 December 2016 . This will go a long way in developing the peripheral communities and afford the girl child the ability to understand her rights and also prevent herself for social threats that might disturb her progress in school. We chose this school because many things are happening but few reach to these peripheral edges of our communities and a lot of moral decay and discrimination towards women is highly perpetrated.
On the 24th of November, we gave out the kit to producers and actors of a theatre play Borrowed Parts that was being staged at one of the prominent theatre centre , Theatre in the Park in Harare , the producers carried a discussion after the play and gave out the material . The play touches on issues of Women and girl child physical, mental, emotional and sexual abuse. It attracted a serious dialogue after its showing. In the same vein we gave out material at one prominent media outlet 263Chat and we gave out a profile and media briefing on GBV prevention and awareness through the use posters and Ribbons we will send the detail of profile video soon .
