Shamva Mine Football Club hosted Girl-Keepers training on School Related Gender Based Violence (SRGBV) at their stadium on the 18th of October, 2018. The training targeted men and boys as key contributors in the elimination of SRGBV.
It was attended by Shamva Mine Football Club executive committee, team management and players. Also in attendance was Mr Nyakurerwa who serves as the Councillor of ward 29. The training managed to build an insight on SRGBV and how it affects communities. The participants were enlightened on how they could contribute to the bigger picture of ending SRGBV.
The club’s chairman emphasised that men and boys across multiple sectors have a vital role to play as fathers, brothers, husbands in speaking out against violence against young women and girls, and denouncing stereotypes that condone violence. For this and other reasons, it was necessary to work with men and boys in the creation of safe environments in and around educational settings.
