Zimbabwe Gender Commission partners City of Harare in a Clean-Up Campaign

The Zimbabwe Gender Commission (ZGC), in collaboration with the Harare City Council, held a Clean-Up Campaign at Mbare Musika on March 1st. This initiative aimed to promote cleanliness, gender equality, and community empowerment, while also raising awareness against gender-based violence (GBV).

The clean-up campaign ran under the theme “Clean-Up Mbare, Sweep out GBV out.”

The campaign also served as an initiative to promote women’s empowerment and recognition, aligning with the ZGC’s commitment to these goals. It further highlighted the significance of grassroots efforts in enhancing the well-being of both women and their communities.

The Zimbabwe Gender Commission Act (Chapter 10:31) establishes a legal framework to promote gender equality. The Commission advocates for women’s rights through programs, community engagement, and campaigns. This fosters inclusivity, ensuring both men and women have equal opportunities to participate in socio-economic development.

“As part of our efforts to promote cleanliness and gender awareness, we have identified Mbare Musika and Mbare Bus Terminus as focal points for the clean-up activities. This initiative holds great importance as it will serve as a launchpad for Women’s Month activities, symbolizing our commitment to promoting cleanliness, gender equality, and community empowerment,” said a representative from the Zimbabwe Gender Commission.

The clean-up campaign aimed to empower everyone to take action towards creating cleaner and safer spaces for women in our community. By raising public awareness about the connection between clean environments and women’s safety and well-being, the campaign sought to inspire widespread participation. The collective effort demonstrated the power of unity and collaboration in creating a lasting impact. Everyone has a role to play, and together, we can make a real difference in fostering a safer and more inclusive environment for all.

Women should be able to feel safe, respected, and supported in their communities.
