Loziba Festival, a movement that seeks to empower the girl child hosted an event to celebrate the International Women’s Day at a local leisure spot last week under the theme, Gender Equality Today for a Sustainable Tomorrow. To appreciate and showcase the wide range of art in Bulawayo, the event was graced by women who entertained the audience through their diverse genres of art. Awareness is being raised in terms of the support that the girl child should be receiving from the society although there is still need to push harder as a society in terms of supporting and honouring the girl child. The Loziba Festival is an annual event that happens on March. However, in its two years of existence, the movement has always strived to advocate for gender equality as well as promote women in art and also the girl child through a number of programmes like Catch them Whilst they are young, Digital Skills for rural girls, among others.
