At SKIRTS we are always happy to have visitors in our space. Last week we had the pleasure of hosting Rudo warrior, a consultant for the FRIDA Fund (Flexibility, Resources, Inclusivity, Diversity and Action). FRIDA engages with groups directly to enable them to define their own strengths, weaknesses, and to develop their capacities through experiences.
Outreach and capacity building were key subjects during the meeting. Present during the visit were SKIRTS team, who gave their first hand experience in capacity development, Resource mobilization and knowledge building not forgetting our monitoring and learning evaluation process.
During the course of the meeting we shared our successes and the stumbling blocks that we have encountered in our cause of creating awareness around the matters on on-line violence and harassment, provision of training on digital security and creating of evidence on on-line violence and harassment in the society.
We also learn a lot from Rudo and FRIDA at large for it is not very so often, that somebody comes along and says something so honest, so inspiring, so mind-explodingly wise, that there’s nothing left to do except stare at them unblinkingly, that was our experience from the meeting. We were happy to host you in our space, and we re looking forward to your next visit.
Yesterday, FRIDA featured SKIRTS on their social media pages you can see more about that here.
