Roline tells us that she encountered Gender Links for the first time in 2012 when Gender Links country manager Sarry Xoagus visited Tses Village Council and held a workshop and briefed them about Gender Links. Asked what it was like working with Gender Links, she said that it has been amazing experience. She adds that it has been encouraging and motivational for her as a young woman in the organisation and that Gender Links has contributed to the council’s knowledge regarding gender related issues and the council is now “walking the talk of gender equalityÀ.

Elise Shikongo – Eenhana COE

Elise’s first encounter with Gender Links was in 2013 when Eenhana Town Council joined other local authorities and became a Centre of Excellence through a council resolution. This came about after council was identified as one of the Centres of Excellence, hence she realised that her council would be part of the country wide implementation of the SADC Gender Protocol to help achieve the goals identified. Gender Links briefed Eenhana Town Council on gender mainstreaming and during September the council conducted stages 1-5 through consultative meetings with various stakeholders thereby developing a Gender Action Plan.

Tichawanda Chamuka – Zimbabwe

Ward 16 is a constituency which falls under Kadoma City Council and has a population of 5967. The average ratio of male to female is 40% against 60%. Having experienced the malaria deaths of two pregnant women, a man and a child, as a councillor I had to visit Chemukute Clinic for more information. Records showed that 215 women had received treatment for malaria in 2013 with 63 of them pregnant, a concern which prompted me as a leader to take some measures to assist in the elimination of the spread of malari

Sithabisiwe Takawira – Beitbridge Municipality

A good leader is a leader with people’s well-being at heart, who puts the interests of others before his or hers; one who would go an extra mile to help others.
Last year I joined Mrs Mapaya, the child care worker, during visits to underprivileged children. We visited the Mashate family where we found a single mother of four children. She narrated how she ended up being a single parent citing how her husband left her for a younger woman, leaving her stranded in their rural home with no means to fend for her children.

Muchineripi Chinyanganya – Zimbabwe

The first time I visited Single Quarters and General Barracks in Kadoma I came face to face with living conditions that I did not know people could live in. A family of more than three living in one room, sharing communal toilets which were not being cleaned and had no potable water. There was rampant abuse of girl children and women at the hands of men. This was a breeding ground of diseases, crime and child prostitution. As a leader I knew the task that lay ahead of me and that such issues had to be addressed if people were to have their basic human rights protected and promoted, including gender equality. I qualify to be a driver of change because of my passion, my contribution and my plans around gender issues, as well as my participation in gender programmes.
