Updates from our Women’s Rights, Agency and Voice Interventions



​In August 2022, PWC held a training of two women’s rights forums to provide education, awareness, and empowerment on general human rights, women’s rights, and children’s rights. The training was conducted in two villages, Oltepesi and Lesing’eita, and reached forty-eight participants (forty women and eight men). The main objectives of the training were to educate and raise awareness on both women’s rights and additional leadership forums that focus on gender-based violence, probate and estate issues, and accessing legal platforms for justice. Participants were also trained on the proper agencies to report human rights violations to, including the local government authorities, police stations (gender desk), social welfare offices, and courts of law. They finished the forums with training on how to run the forum and the forum’s role in their community.
