A new report on Women Rights highly recommends GEMINI's approach to reducing family violence.
"Deadly Silence", a report written by Center for Human Rights & Democracy (CHRD) applauds our all-inclusive strategies, stating that "respect for women rights are central to any form of development."
CHRD's Director, Ken Wanjala, told local media that the fight for women rights would only be won if men were included as partners and not aggressors.
He extensively cited GEMINI's multi-pronged approach, saying empowering women was a vital step in bridging the inequality gap.
"GEMINI has proved that men can become strong pillars in advocating for women rights," he said during the launch of the report.
Over the past two months, GEMINI has been instrumental in bringing together local leaders, men and potential women leaders in dialogue. In November, we are planning for 4 more workshops where more women will be equipped with leadership skills.
A recent review of participants indicate that an increasing number of men, 34% up from 27% are willing to take an active role in ending domestic violence.
The Report will be used as a benchmark in evaluating increased democratic space in Kenya during this year's General Elections.
