Voices of the Indigenous San Women, Speaking Up for Ourselves!

Voices-of-the-Indigenous-San-Women-Speaking-Up-for-Ourselves
The WLC Community facilitators hosted and facilitated 7 meetings in 7 villages each with the San girls, San women and the community over the past two months on imagining a better world, culture, heritage and on MOVING FROM LITERAL VIOLENCE TO LITERAL LOVING AND KINDNESS. We thank everyone in Drimiopsis, Omega 1, Mutjiku, Tsinsabis, Ndama, Corridor 17 and Witvlei who took part in this important process, the community facilitators whose leadership is fiercely developing and our partners Olof Palme International Center for making it possible to bring change to the lives of the indigenous communities in Namibia.

Zambezi Women's Rights!

Zambezi-Womens-Rights
The WLC facilitates the voice and expression of Namibian women through information sharing, research, writing, photography, and the publishing of critical feminist texts that we distribute within Namibian society. In that spirit we just concluded a 2-day WOMEN's VOICES writing workshop with the women from Zambezi region in Katima Mulilo, sharing their experiences and realities on harmful cultural practices that still exist in Namibia and how we can all collectively prevent them so women and girls can thrive in all aspects of their lives.

Zambezi Women's Rights, preventing harmful cultural practices!

Zambezi-Womens-Rights-preventing-harmful-cultural-practices
Earlier this month the WLC hosted a two-day women’s rights workshop with women from Katima Mulilo Urban. It was the first time we were meeting with women in town (outside the villages we are working in). We introduced the women to the work of the WLC and our programme, and we spoke about what #harmfulculturalpractices they still see and battle in their communities. We are grateful to the fierce and courageous women who own their truth and want to change the world for better and say with pride "Violence is not our Culture".
