MASVINGO - The Minister of Women Affairs, Gender and Community Development, Nyasha Chikwinya has recently launched the 16 days of activism against Gender Based Violence (GBV) in Harare.
Speaking at the launch, the Minister said these 16 days are meant to provide a platform for stakeholders working on GBV issues to dialogue and share new effective strategies, to raise awareness on national response programmes and to address GBV.
She added that the 16 days were meant to strengthen local work around service provision for GBV survivors and to demonstrate solidarity with the survivors.
She said that Government is concerned with the rising number of child marriages. According to the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education there are 4 500 minors who dropped out of school in 2016 and of these 3 955 are girls and 264 boys.
The phenomenon is attributed to child marriages.
This year's commemoration is being held under the theme; 'From Peace in the Home to Peace in the World: Let us unite to end Gender Based Violence.'
"I therefore call upon all men in Zimbabwe to join and partake in this initiative as statistics indicate that men and boys are perpetrators of 99% of GBV cases," said Chikwinya.
