The Gender Unit at Dar es salaam University College of Education (DUCE) recently organized an important workshop on gender in education. Specifically, the training – between 10th to 11th January 2019 brought together members of staff to deliberate on how to integrate gender perspectives in research alongside the National Plan of Action to end Violence Against Women and Children (NPA-VAWC).
In his opening speech, the Deputy Principal – Administration, Dr. Method Semiono, urged the participants to find ways to apply the knowledge from this training in conducting gender-based research.
The Coordinator of Gender Unit, Dr. Ikupa Moses, said that the training adds up to related trainings which the unit at DUCE has been organizing from time to time.
“The unit plans to bring more such interactive workshops for members of staff to share views and raise awareness of gender concerns that impacts on children and mothers at homes,” Dr. Moses said.
Facilitators of training were Dr. Rose Mwaipopo from the University of Dar es Salaam and Dr. Simwanza Katanta from the Plan International (Da es Salaam).
