Peace Intervention in Bulawayo Metropolitan Province by E.C.L.F

In August ECLF launched its first gender centered peace intervention in Bulawayo Metropolitan Province. For quite some time now we have been highlighting the fact that gender dynamics introduce some complexity to conflict situations and hence to any peace building interventions. As a result there is need to mainstream gender issues into the peace building work.
Through this inaugural program ECLF will be working with church leaders , both male and female, in the province with a focus on capacitating them with skills to handle conflicts within the church and their communities by adopting a gender sensitive lens. It is our hope that this program will culminate in practical strategies by which the church can address gender based violence and other such conflicts in a more holistic and sensitive manner.
