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 .

 

On the 6th and 7th  of December 2016  , the GirlChildCreativityProject will lead  a digital  training program for women and girls  under the auspices of Wikipedia  / Wiki Loves Africa  which  an international project that seeks to promote Wikipedia in Africa and beyond. The WikiLoves Africa through  will conduct training programs in Zimbabwe for women and girls on how to write , edit , upload on Wikipedia    through GirlChildCreativity Project and other organizations that support women and girls project .
