Sonke Gender Justice and MenEngage Africa hosted a Gender Transformative Approaches (GTA) training for MenEngage Africa partners in Malawi and Uganda as part of the Power To Youth programme. GTA is a strong component within the programme that will question, challenge, and examine harmful gender norms and unequal power relations that bring out inequalities in their communities. The countries are addressing harmful norms of Sexual and Gender Based Violence, early marriages, and Female genital mutilation.
The training aimed at supporting participants to have a deeper understanding of the GTA, reflect on the GTA trajectory for their respective countries, and align their work plans with a GTA lens. Sonke is leading the Gender Transformation Approaches component for the programme and will continue to provide mentorship, support, and platforms for continual linking and learning.
