WASHINGTON DC —
The Zimbabwe Human Rights Association has launched a community awareness program designed to highlight constitutional provisions supporting their rights.
Zimrights director Okay Machisa said the socio-economic barometer workshops launched in some parts of the country are expected to encourage citizen participation in various issues while mobilizing every individual to play a key role towards socio-economic transformation and justice.
Zimbabweans are concerned about serious problems they are facing, which include water woes, lack of jobs, failure by the government to allow peaceful protests and the general mistrust between the state and its citizens.
The socio-econometer barometer will be a tool for lobbying and advocating for change from policy formulation to policy implementation.
