Pitfalls of The Internet As A Developmental Tool

03 Dec 2018  

On Dec 3 2018, Koliwe supported by USAID and Counterpart International among many other organisations launched her first research project ‘Pitfalls of the internet as a developmental tool’ which seeks to show how the internet has become a political weapon to infringe on the rights of marginal sexual and gender communities rather than a developmental tool and seeks to make recommendations for policy and legislative reform. The research focuses on different target groups – sex workers and the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) communities in Zimbabwe – whom although have different characteristics, their interests and the challenges they face intersect in several ways.
