NEWS REPORT:  Capacity building for members of MIFUMI Women’s Network

TO ENSURE FULL PARTICIPATION OF MEMBERS OF MIFUMI’S NETWORK, MIFUMI HAS STARTED CAPACITY-BUILDING SESSIONS FOR VARIOUS MEMBERS OF THE NETWORK.

Network members who have stepped into voluntary community rights activism have attended several trainings since February 2020 to prepare them as frontline case support workers. MIFUMI also developed a number of training manuals to continue structured training for all members of the network such as the Counsellor’s companion, the Duty bearer’s companion, the Caseworker’s manual among others.

Also, 60 members of the network have been trained and learned basic skills in social media use; as a tool for community networking, mobilisation, advocacy and learning.

MIFUMI believes these skills will enable these community groups confidently to lead community action in preventing and responding to violence against women and girls.
