Since 2009 to date the Mauritian Satellite Office of Gender Links has been facilitating workshops for women politicians/women political activists in Mauritius, Madagascar and the Democratic Republic of Congo. In Mauritius Gender Links trained women of the Executive Committee of the Labour Party and the Mouvement Militant Socialiste while in Madagascar Gender Links trained women who will stand as candidates for the next local elections.

The SADC Protocol on Gender and Development is one of the key guiding instruments used during these workshops. As the 28 articles of the Protocol are the gists of what these women should know. The key provisions of the Protocol on the media and women in decision have been used extensively both in the training manuals and getting participants to interact with these provisions during these workshops.

Gender Links did these workshops prior to Presidential, National and Local Elections to encourage women to stand as candidates and to become trainers so that other women are encouraged to stand as candidates.
A two day workshop in DRC was held at the Conference Room of Notre Dame de Fatima in Kinshasa. The workshop was held with the collaboration of UCOFEM.
