Training Workshop with Police in Kwale County on Violence Against Women and Girls

Written by

African Woman and Child (AWC) Feature Service is currently implementing the Jamii Thabiti programme that focuses on three forms of violence: Violence against Women and Girls; Criminal Violence, and Inter-Communal Violence. Under this programme, AWC Feature Service is focusing on Violence against Women and Girls (VAWG). In this regard, the organization is working with state and non-state actors to end this form of violence.

AWCFS will be holding a training workshop with the Police who are a strategic partner in this programme.

The two-day workshop will be held in Kwale County from the 14th to 15th July, 2016

Some of the workshop objectives:

  1. To increase understanding and clarity of police officers on definition, forms, and presentation of violence against women and girls
  2. To enhance the knowledge and skills of police officers on laws, policies, procedures and other responses to violence against women and girls
  3. To strengthen the abilities of a critical mass of Kenya police officers to identify and offer the appropriate information and assistance to, and ensure justice for victims and survivors of violence against women and girls
