We are both very grateful to Gender Links for hosting the workshop, and would like to strengthen the relationship even further we have formed a very close personal relationship with Ntombi as well from GL. The encounter with GL has also helped us realise that it is very important as different stakeholders to come together, in a good manner to address issues of GBV. There is power in numbers and every little bit helps and goes a very long way indeed.
