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:
- To increase understanding and clarity of police officers on definition, forms, and presentation of violence against women and girls
- To enhance the knowledge and skills of police officers on laws, policies, procedures and other responses to violence against women and girls
- 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
