TrustAfrica in collaboration with EM2030 jointly hosted a virtual training in data driving advocacy, on May 3-4-5, 2021. Many women's rights organizations face resource and capacity gaps that prevent them from effectively doing their work. How to collect and effectively use data and evidence is one of the pressing issue they face to strengthen their advocacy. During the three day training, 18 champions have seen their gender advocates skills strengthening in the basics of data research, analysis and evaluation. They now have a clearer understanding of how to use data in their advocacy work. This was a good moment of learning that reinvigorated women leaders, especially in the social movement. As advocacy must be data driven, it was important for our champions to learn how to meet GBV data requirements before it can be collected, analyzed and communicated. This three days was also an opportunity for women’s leaders from different countries and different context to learn from others.
