Gender & Human Rights
KWID has been a key prayer in sensitizing community members to address cultural beliefs and practices that affect women’s image, sense of empowerment, and ability to make informed decisions regarding their well-being.
Combating GBV is a key strategy where KWID has strengthened community members’ capacity to prevent GBV and enhance reproductive rights. This has contributed towards making safer homes and communities but a lot needs to be done. We have empowered children and caregivers with skills, knowledge, values, and practices to overcome life’s challenges through OVC weekly life skill sessions, Caregivers’ monthly training, parenting campaigns, community library, and OVC clubs.
We have mentored girl children to remain in and complete school to enable them to acquire skills to earn a living as well as minimize child marriages.
