Community Conversation Workshops
In order to make long-term changes in the ways girls and women are treated, Twende Pamoja runs a series of community workshops with parents, teachers, elders, chiefs and religious leaders. It is only through engaging the whole community in this way that we can change attitudes and reduce acts of violence in schools, at home and in the community.
In addition, chiefs, elders and religious leaders from all the communities in which we have partner schools are being trained to lead similar workshops within their own communities. 8 sessions have been prepared so far, with both training and delivery of sessions going well.
