CDCB has been implementing a project entitled “Strengthening Women and Girl’s political Engagement and Mobilization” in collaboration with the Women, Youth, and Children office of Berrek district, with the support of the Canadian Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI). The center has delivered TOT training for selected leading women on “Human, Democratic and Women Rights” and the leading women have been leading community dialogues that have been conducted at the community level with women and girls in more than ten Kebeles for the last two years.
In continuation of the project, CDCB has organized a one-day training on election facilitation and a one experience sharing session among the leading women and some women from the community from February 23 to 24, 2021 at Sandafa Bakke Town. In the experience sharing session, women have made thorough discussion on Human, Democratic and Women Rights in connection to the election, electoral system, and procedures with experienced figures (women who had a lot of experience on the issues). It was learned from the interview with some participants that women have grasped a profound understanding of the subject matter and requested the continuation of the same project in the future.
