• Gender Based Violence Working group, Dagoretti
  • Maisha Poa and all organizations working in Dagoretti District, hosts a working group for organizations working against gender based violence. This is due to the high incidences for rape especially against young girls and sexual abuses against the boys.  The organization also participates in the national cluster for gender based violence hosted by the Gender Commission, monthly.  Activities of the network include rescue of abused children, legal support, rehabilitation, counseling and capacity building for different actors in the community.  This working group started in 2010 after Maisha Poa Centre, Fida International, other organizations and the Gender Commission, Ministry of Gender and Social Services, co hosted the Launch of the 16 Days of activism against gender Violence.  Write to us if you are interested in supporting the work of Dagoretti gender based violence network.
