GWANDA: Habakkuk Trust Community Advocacy Action Team Convenors from Gwanda wards 1, 2 and 21 are this Thursday meeting on their own to strategize on how they can collaborate as communities to tackle critical advocacy issues affecting them.
The initiative that was started by Dambashoko Convenor, Mr Nesu Moyo is expected to accord action team convenors an opportunity to not only peer learn but also exchange vital skills and ideas that will ensure that the action teams they lead are more effective and efficient. It is also anticipated that through this initiative, action teams may start a concept of ‘community twinning’ where two or more communities join hands to tackle an issue that is key to one community. This initiative will also work as a peace-building model for communities.
Speaking to Habakkuk Trust over the phone today, Mr Nesu said he shall be ‘hosting the meeting at his homestead this Thursday at 10am’ and he is expecting that the initiative ‘will yield positive results’ though it’s at its infancy stage.
