The Programmes Manager, YES Trust, Ms Thina Maphosa (Zimbabwe), has restated commitment and that of her organisation to strengthening local initiative and structures that would enhance fight against Gender Based Violence in her country through creating genuine partnership/collaborations that are transparent, engage more in capacity development and training to improve local competence and skills in leadership, advocacy, research, evidence generation, outreaches, communication, social mobilisation, coordination, networking, awareness raising, implementation of interventions and monitoring and evaluation of programs and initiatives in the fight against elimination of GBV.
Ms. Thina made this known in a Gender Based Violence symposium organised by Afrihealth Optonet Association, racently.
Thina said, promoting the works of the civil society to eliminate all forms of gender-based violence in all countries and communities would go along way in sanitizing the world morally and making it a free gender based violence.
However, she pointed out that, the fight against GBV should be a joint effort irrespective of colour, age, country and tribe.
