Teachers training on Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights
TAWLA is conducting training to 16 secondary school teachers from Arusha, Tanga, Dodoma and Dar es Salaam on Sexual and Reproductive Health Rights in relation to gender issues and maternal health. The selected teachers have managed to establish eight (8) Sexual Reproductive Health Rights clubs from 2015 to date in schools. Through clubs youth obtain time to discuss and share proper information.
"TAWLA recognizes the important role that teachers have been playing in ensuring sustainable capacity building of peer educators in schools which influence informed decision making among youth. This has been done through extra curricular activities sessions in schools under their supervision as mentors. The training is an opportunity to discuss on how the law can be a vital tool of advancing Sexual and reproductive Health Rights" said Tike Mwambipile - TAWLA Executive Director.

TAWLA facilitated training on land rights and disputes settlement to members of land tribunal, ward executive officers and paralegals in Magu district - Mwanza. This will assist them to make gender responsive decision when solving land disputes.
