Just and Resilient Communities Project Gender-based Violence and Child Protection: Diocese of Mt Kenya West
Partners: Anglican Overseas Aid and Anglican Church of Kenya
This project is implemented in Nyeri County in the Diocese of Mount Kenya West from 2014-2017. The project seeks to build safer communities, by addressing the link between poverty and violence against women and children. The Anglican Church of Kenya (ACK) aims to raise community awareness about the realities of domestic violence, and how to support survivors.
The ACK aims to reduce gender-based violence and improve child protection in Chaka and Thangathi communities in Nyeri County, a central region of Kenya. This project is a new phase of work for ACK, building on a 15-year focus on community-based HIV/AIDS prevention and response.
