Comments Off on In Kenya, Youth Organized Awareness Camps on Gender Violence

The Youth program, in partnership with Men Engage Kenya Network, organised two awareness camps in Nairobi, on Sexual Reproductive Health and Gender Based Violence.

The forums provided youth leaders with information on topical issues around SRH and GBV besides formation of a peer-to-peer network and development of plans of action for enhanced intervention. One of their immediate actions was participation in an urban festival dance on February 14th 2013, aimed at stopping Violence against Women. This dance was organised by V-One Billion Rising and Coalition on Violence Against Women. Men Engage Kenya is working with the African Council of Religious Leaders Youth program, along with other youth organizations, to build a new approach on preventing and stopping violence against women, by specifically teaching and training boys and young men.

A Statement of the International Executive Committee: 24 March 2011

RESTORING DIGNITY: A COMMITMENT TO END VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN

The Religions for Peace Executive Committee recognizes that violence against women is a direct assault on peace that is central to each of our respective religious traditions. No one should ever have to endure any act that robs them of the right to live healthy and fulfilling lives. All women and men of faith should work to uphold the dignity of women and girls. Religions for Peace commits to prevent acts of violence against women so that this terrible crime may be eliminated and to mobilize the compassion and strength of religious communities as an essential part of healing and caring for survivors. Eliminating violence against women is a religious duty.  Doing so will also nourish all of us for healthier and more fulfilling lives. View the Religions for Peace Statement
