This project was implemented from 2012 to 2014 with the aim of strengthening the capacity of local women to promote and initiate peace initiatives. They were able to better articulate issues of electoral conflict and sexual gender based violence.
The project trained our organizational staff on how to successfully design and implement community projects. Local women were equipped with knowledge and skills that allowed them to take an active role in combatting a range of issues. They were encouraged to involve themselves with social and economic issues at both the community & national level.
Over 2,000 local women were involved in the project, which lead to the formation of a council of 60 women. This council provided legal representation for women, and greatly reduced gender based violence within their community.
