Project Report | Aug 29, 2023
Monthly report

By Elsa Marie DSilva | Project Leader

Our report from Kenya where we are partnering with Polycom for girls.

The Problem - In the densely populated slum of Kibera, Kenya, the streets were rife with harassment, creating a hostile environment for women and girls. The lack of open discussions and education perpetuated this harmful behavior leading to low self esteem and girls dropping out of school. 

How they used Safecity - Leveraging the data collected on Safecity, Polycom Girls collaborated with the various religious institutions to educate men and boys through respected leaders, GBV education in schools and on community radio, thus encouraging open dialogues about the issue. 

Impact - Safecity's data-driven approach led to impactful policy changes, reviving sexual offenses act and establishing safeguarding policy in schools. By debunking norms, it created a safe space for reporting sexual harassment and empowered communities ensure safer environments for women and girls.

Thank you for your support.
