Women’s World in Nationwide Sensitization
Women’s World Sierra Leone commenced a fourteen day nationwide sensitization tour in a bid to rebrand the culture of divide and provocative politics that is currently doing the rounds across the nation.
In an exclusive interview with Frances Stevens, the Secretary General, she noted that the exercise started days before the polls and after the polls as well, noting that although the outcome of the election results is widely considered credible by both international and local observers, she however argued that it is clearly evident that supporters of the winning party are using all sorts of provocative languages against their opponents, which she referred to as a recipe that can undermine the peace and stability that the country is currently enjoying.
She said her organization has trained over seven hundred young women in the fourteen districts of the country that will serve as focal person and ambassadors of peace. The Secretary General pointed that the nation is bigger than any personality or political party underscoring that it is the principal reason why her organization is beseeching Sierra Leoneans to embrace the culture of peace as we carry one common identity.
Frances reflected that the organization came into existence in 2009 with the aim of capacitating the girl-child and women mostly faced with challenges of education and employment. She disclosed that her organization has already constructed institutes at the Goderich Community and in the Kono District which she says are training young women in skill related jobs. She continued that this training exercise will help young people to match-up with the challenges in society.
In her concluding statement Frances Stevens said her organization’s success comes with close working collaboration with the sister group, Women’s Situation Room in addressing challenges facing women across the country.
