As part of larger efforts to improve media’s coverage of gender based violence, Gender Links (GL) is running a series of training workshops for the media in the Southern African development Community. This training project, taking place just a few weeks before the commencement of the 16 Days of Activism against Gender Based Violence, complements the media centres for gender in the media project which offers thematic training for media in the region.

So far training workshops have been held in Mauritius (MBC and Le Defi), in Botswana and Lesotho. These workshops, being run in close collaboration with the GL Local Government Programme, seeks to bring together GL’s media COEs and the Local Government COS in tackling and raising awareness of GBV at a local level. The training workshops have seen journalists going to cover GBV stories at different localities.

The training workshops also serve to prepare journalists for the upcoming 16 days campaign. The training programme has a whole 16 days module, outlining the key themes that media can take up as well as a breakdown of some of the activities that will be run by local councils.
