We are delighted to be among the finalists for the The Womanity Foundation Awards.
This partnership with CREAW Kenya and CARE Kenya/Rwanda will support the adaptation of the Indashyikirwa (Agents for Change)- an Intimate Partner Violence prevention program originally implemented in Rwanda.
The programme will work with couples to reduce intimate partner violence (IPV) and improve the wellbeing of survivors by shifting attitudes, behaviours and norms that drive IPV. It is also aimed at strengthening the evidence base for community GBV prevention and response.
“We have a big gap when it comes to prevention of violence against women and girls in Kenya, a lot of emphasis has been on response. The adaptation of the Indashyikirwa program therefore provides us with an opportunity to scale-up interventions and address violence affecting women and girls in the households and by large, at the Country level.”
