Resume:

The objective of this intervention is to strengthen the partnership between Institute for Young Women Development (IYWD) and Afrika Kontakt (AK) through collective capacity building: AK’s capacity to observe and monitor elections and IYWD’s capacity to observe and influence local and national decision-making processes. This will be achieved by observing the 2018 harmonised elections in Zimbabwe. Members from both organisations will receive training and be formally accredited as election observers. Through collective observation, IYWD and AK will strengthen their partnership and benefit from valuable research, useful in their on-going project. The findings of the observation will be published in a joint report increasing awareness of rural Zimbabwean women’s struggles. As such, the intervention will build capacity in both organisations, strengthen the partnership and ultimately be a crucial step in towards equal opportunities and participation of women in decision making in Zimbabwe.
