Launch of the Women Human Rights Defenders Toolkit
European Union in Kenya partners with Peace Brigades International on the 'International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women' on Friday, November 25, 2016 for the launch of a toolkit for Women Human Rights Defenders (WHRDs) in Nairobi's urban settlements.
Women Human Rights defenders are often confronted with gender-based violence including sexual violence and discrimination in communities that expect them to adhere to traditional gender roles. The toolkit aims to improve the WHRDs' understanding on security and protection, by providing them with knowledge, information and relevant tools to undertake their own risk assessments and define security rules and procedures which suit their environment.
