It is with great pleasure that l present to you the annual report for Emthonjeni Women’s Forum for 2016. The beginning of 2016 saw EWF continue raising awareness on women’s constitutional rights in Umguza and Tsholotsho. The year also saw EWF moving into Insiza with an integrated approach to reducing GBV. The year also saw the continued implementation of the Male Champion programme in partnership with World Vision towards the promotion of girls education.
2017 has been the midpoint of our strategic plan, and this gave us the opportune time to introspect on achievements towards the realisation of our set goals. First was our focus on transforming gender norms through Engaging in activities that challenge behaviours, beliefs, laws, and customs
that promote gender inequality and gender injustice.
