If you were not watching the road signs and were driving more than 100km/ hour, you could easily miss the little town of Ngwenya. With a population of approximately 1281 people, when you look at the work that this COE is doing on the ground, you will be reassured that size does not matter.

Kitwe City council is relatively new to the Center of Excellence process having been adopted in 2012. Hence not much has been done in terms of mainstreaming gender in the action plan.

Lusaka City Council Institutional Profile

Lusaka City Council Institutional Profile

The Lusaka City Council is one of the new twelve COEs that came on board in 2012. It is gratifying that the largest urban Council with 33 wards has embarked on a systematic gender mainstreaming journey, which shall undoubtedly give demonstrative encouragement to the rest of the Councils to join. For instance, during the 2012 16 days of activism against GBV, it is the first body in the country to conduct a social-march on “take back the night” in a high density community and in an area where gruesome murders of young women have recently taken place. LCC intends to make this activity an annual event undertaken in trouble-spot areas.
