Policy Advocacy

What is it?

Our policy advocacy program lobby government ministries to ensure that institutional policies of Tertiary Education Institutions (TEIs) are more gender sensitive. FSNT engages parliamentarians, line ministries, ministers, college authorities and relevant stakeholders through varied interfaces. Dialogue is employed to discuss and review policies through presentation of pertinent matters before different parliamentary portfolios. These authorities are invited to actively participate in the Network’s programs at grassroots level so that they have a vivid understanding of the realities on the ground. It is also a conducive platform that FSNT has managed to create for female students to interact with these authorities and air out their concerns. In 2015, the Network carried out a National Baseline Survey on Sexual Harassment in TEIs in Zimbabwe’s 10 provinces. Key findings showed that of the sampled TEIs only 4 had Sexual Harassment Policies and one a draft. Male lectures were found to be the major perpetrators. Current efforts are directed at advocacy for the formulation and effective implementation of Sexual Harassment Policies within TEI’s.

Objective
