LGS Master Trainer Sessions on Gender Mainstreaming

WEPP-KP conducted TOT on Gender Mainstreaming for LGS Master Trainers in the last reporting period in September 2020. All the training participants shared their action plans for conducting one-day sessions in their respective offices and districts on gender mainstreaming to the staff, officers, academia and community members. In response to that action plan, 13 LGS MTs conducted 16 one-day orientations on GM in nine districts of KP in their respective offices in November 2020 – January 2021. The districts include; Peshawar, Mardan, Charsadda, Nowshera, Swabi, Kohat, Bannu, Buner and Swat. Considering the events conducted in hard areas regarding women participation like; Buner, Bannu, Charsadda, etc., women participation in these events was a challenge but due to the joint efforts of Master Trainers and WEPP-KP, women participants attended each and every event. In some locations like; Tehsil Municipal Offices (TMO) Buner, TMO Bannu, TMO Mardan, TMO Charsadda, it was the first ever event on the Gender Mainstreaming topic and the participants came to know about this for the first time and they felt satisfaction over this. The participants even invited and requested WEPP-KP for conducting these events in their respective villages as well. In TMO Takhtbhai Mardan where our event conducted by Female Master Trainer and that too on the Gender Mainstreaming, none of the women ever been as an employee, staff or in a leading role in that government office ever.
