WOMEN EMPOWERMENT/GENDER EQUITY

Where you are an individual or an organization, activism to prevent stems from a deep personal belief in the change you seek, and a dedication to making that change. This reaffirms our power within and compels us to take positive action in pour lives and communities to prevent Violence against Women and bring about Women Empowerment.

At Municipal Alliance for Better and Smart Cities, the aspect of Gender Based Violence prevention we foster both individual and collective activism. We recognize that activism as a commitment that runs long and deep and that an activist’s work is the work of lifetime. Through our Thematic Action Groups and the 15 days Campaign we strengthen collective actions throughout the region.

Thematic Action Groups

The GBV Prevention Network includes a diverse group of members with a wide range of thematic interests in Violence against Women (VaW) prevention. Thematic Action Groups (TAGs) give members the opportunity to take specific action around a particular issue or area related to VaW. Within a Thematic Action Group, members explore new tools for seeking social justice, practice putting thoughts into action, and share strategies for specific aspects of violence prevention. Thematic Action Groups are member-initiated and member-led with support from the Coordinating Office

GIRL CHILD AND WOMEN EMPOWEREMNT THROUGH SKILLS AND INFORMAL EDUCATION

During the 15 Days of Activism, the MABAS joins in a worldwide campaign by using a regionally developed theme, created in partnership with our participating members. Partnership and collaborating individual members and organizations receive an Action and Advocacy Kit which is used to boost our activism during the 15 Days campaign
Our unique community based model, which we’ve refined and expanded over the last one year, helps establish sustainable education solutions to transform the futures of today’s children. Our experience has shown that families, schools, communities, and governments must work together to help children develop skills in and out of school, from early childhood through adolescence.

Attaining the basic skills of literacy and numeracy is the main focus for children in primary school, with a goal of increasing the number of children who read with comprehension right away after their nursery schools.

Teachers are trained to incorporate core reading skills into their curriculum and parents are equipped to help their children read outside of school in addition to helping them with home work given by the teachers at schools.
