It’s just a month before the start of our second training session. We are finalizing the selection of communities that will be participating in the training session. Based on the experiences from the December 2013 groups, we have given the mandate to select participants to the community. In 2013, we had two women who participated in the training but were not eligible and in an effort to avoid the repeat of this scenario we are getting the community to work more closely with us right from selection.
The communities that will take part in the upcoming training sessions are Rusape, Marondera, Seke, Chegutu and Kwekwe. Two of the participating communities had a group trained in December 2013 but due to the big need in the communities we have agreed to train second groups.
During our community meetings, community members insisted that we make good follow-ups to support them to set up and run the projects and not just offer training. We were so delighted to hear that they want to implement after training and we are committed to make sure they will do just that!
