Celebrating Women's month

The month of March has been dedicated world over to celebrating women, their past and present achievements as well as their future aspirations. This month, ZWLA has been to numerous communities in Zimbabwe to celebrate women, in line with this year's International Women's Day theme.

In Harare, ZWLA participated in the celebrations hosted by Women's Coalition of Zimbabwe on the 8th of March where we successfully showcased the work that we do, as well as motivated school girls who were at the occasion to be masters of their own destiny.

As highlighted in the last issue, we went to Mutoko on the 9th of March and a had a wonderful time with the community there, as we celebrated through song, dance, poetry and drama. ZWLA holds mobile legal aid clinics in Mutoko and this has resulted in good relations with members of the community.

ZWLA in Mubaira

ZWLA in partnership with Tsungirirayi Center held a community education campaign in Mubaira where we went beyond commemorating IWD but also had community dialogues on issues that affect women the most such as domestic violence, inheritance, marriage laws and HIV and AIDS.
