Joined the COE programme
Arandis is a small mining town which has a mere 6000 residents, found on the road from the capital Windhoek to Swakopmund. With a municipality displaying all the trappings of a small mining town (almost all the formal jobs go to men; women dominate in the informal sector or as sex workers and there are high levels of gender violence) the council has its work cut out. The council of Arandis is proposing zero violence by 2015. They are also determined to end poverty.

Comments from participants

“The workshop has taught me a lot of new issues
such as the difference between gender and sex.”

I am in a position now to inform my community about the SADC protocol, what it entails and why our country has not yet signed it.”
