WOMEN'S EQUALITY

PARTNERSHIPS AND NETWORKS: What partnerships and networks does your organization participate in, thus strengthening the global movement for a culture of peace?

We collaborate with the academic institutions, churches, and professional bodies to drum our campaign for equality between men and women, women's rights protection, and civic participaion. Our training programmes are done in collaborations with schools within the post primary levels.

ACTIONS: What activities have been undertaken by your organization to promote a culture of peace and nonviolence during the ten years of the Decade? If you already made a report in 2005, your information from 2005 will be included in the 2010 report.

We have been active in school talk shows and workshops among secondary school kids. We have also organised community concerts using dance drama, stage drama to show case the essence of peaceful co-existence. we also organise as need arises interactive forums in troubled ethnic communities to ensure that youths and leaders (especially women) air there views towards involving peace culture. We have engaged indigenous people in conflict resolution and peace building mechanism in open lectures and mini conferences. We have trained Christian leaders on how to use the gospel of Christ to achieve peace among crisis prone communities.

PROGRESS: Has your organization seen progress toward a culture of peace and nonviolence in your domain of action and in your constituency during the second half of the Decade?

We are glad to confirm that we have conqured discrimination against women in some areas, achieved greater women participation in democratic activities and seen increase of women in elective positions. violence against women and girls has been minimised to some extent as girls rights are now being respected.

OBSTACLES: Has your organization faced any obstacles to implementing the culture of peace and nonviolence? If so, what were they?

Obstacle areas include getting community leaders to understand and believe in the right and avoid cultral deprivities, oppression of women in some given ethnic-cultural practices especially on widow's right to husband's property. Fund to enhance campaign strategy, lobby activities and sponsoring women participation in politics.

PLANS: What new engagements are planned by your organization in the short, medium and long term to promote a culture of peace and nonviolence?

Train more women, empower them with viable trade through SME loans, build vocational institutions, develop ICT centres to expose women to global community and civilisation

GLOBAL MOVEMENT: How do you think the culture of peace and nonviolence could be strengthened and supported at the world level??

If women's rights, indigenous peoples rights are duly recognised, there will be a level playing ground for peace talk, peace building and conflict resolutions to be acheived easily. Therefore there is need to develop school curriculum that takes peace building as an elementary subject and career discipline.
