Day  two like day one saw the participants split into groups in order to easily get them to understand the raison d’etre of the workshop

Mr.Charlie Mbonteh together with the participants created Women Foundations for Change in all the council areas involved

Apart from the gender action plan that made it that the women foundations for change be formed,the participants also understood that there was a need for council budgets to be engendered and that these foundations will help for the councils to carry out their budgeting having at the mind of their heads that  all have a say in the growth of the municipalities.
