Tomorrow, 12 July 2016 the Commission for Gender Equality (CGE) will be hosting a delegation of the Mozambican Human Rights Commission as part of their study tour to South Africa. The purpose of the visit is to learn how gender mainstreaming is promoted through the work of various institutions including parliament and the Commission for Gender Equality (CGE) amongst others. The visit is also underpinned by the need to glean key methodologies that can be replicated in Mozambique to mirror the successes of South Africa’s progress toward gender equality.
In their engagement with the CGE, the delegation will be briefed on the CGE Mandate and programmes, including how the different departments of the CGE carry out their work to fulfill the CGE’s Mandate. The outcome of this engagement between the CGE and the Mozambican Human Rights Commission is for both institutions to share experiences and ideas in order to learn from each other. “This visit is an opportune moment for the Commission for Gender Equality to learn from the Mozambican Human Rights Commission and broaden the scope of gender mainstreaming within SADC and beyond. This visit by the Mozambican Human Rights Commission follows previous study visits to the CGE by delegations from other African countries such as Kenya, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Egypt and Malawi. Such visits not only help us learn from each other but also strengthen cooperation and collaboration between us”, said Mr. Mfanozelwe Shozi, the Chairperson of the Commission for Gender Equality.
“The CGE believes that choosing South Africa as one of the destinations for the study tour is an affirmation of the important role that we play in helping to deepen and strength democracy not only within South Africa but also throughout the region”, added Mr. Shozi. Play the best friv games.
