Trainer of trainer’s workshop on rural women land rights
Date: 18th December 2018, Harare

The Zimbabwe Land and Agrarian Network (ZiLAN) in conjunction with Women and Law in Southern Africa (WLSA) and the Sam Moyo African Institute for Agrarian Studies (SMAIAS) will conduct a Trainer of Trainer’s Workshop on Rural Women’s Land Rights on Tuesday 18 December 2018 in Harare beginning at 0830hrs.

The right of women to hold and use land in the various land tenure regimes of Zimbabwe continues to be inequitable in all land tenure regimes, despite the major strides taken in promoting more equitable land redistribution and progressive constitutional reform. It is against this background that ZiLAN is organising a pilot Trainer of Trainer’s workshop to be facilitated by legal, land and gender experts.

The overall objectives of the workshop are to:

  • To adequately prepare ZiLAN members to be able to effectively train and advise rural communities especially of the legal framework, recourse and availability of remedies on women’s land and property rights.
  • Equip participants with practical knowledge on the law and how to engage and/be involved in the land rights systems by accessing the courts and human rights institutions, in order to effectively advance women’s land rights in Zimbabwe.
  • Inform and empower participants to develop and encourage a culture of respect for women and property rights.

It is hoped that the trained cadres will cascade the information to other rural women. Also targeted for training are traditional leaders and other officials in land administration structures. The workshop will mark the end of our 2018 activities.
Wishing you all a happy festive season.
ZiLAN Secretariat.
