Women Peace Builders

Project Duration : 27th July 2017

Background:

Women peace builders from over ten informal slums and settlements in Nairobi are collectively raising the alert for impending violence during the polling day from August 8th.

 The women have raised concerns asking for more protection and security, before, during and immediately post the elections. “We are afraid of election violence”. They urge for the urgent implementation of the UNSCR1325 to cater for the special needs, representation and participation of women and girls in the informal sectors.
