In June 2021, the Government of Kenya decided to end Gender-Based Violence (GBV), including sexual violence, by 2026. When making the announcement, Kenya promised to intensify its campaign to end these violations by undertaking a series of 12 bold commitments. Subsequently, Equality Now has been convening civil society organizations in Kenya that work on ending sexual violence, ending harmful practices, ending sexual exploitation, and all cross-cutting issues to galvanize ways to ensure the commitments are met.

The recently released KDHS Survey provides an opportunity to assess the current status regarding ending SGBV in Kenya. This will further enable us to assess whether it is possible to end SGBV by 2026, as the Government of Kenya promised. Join us for a Webinar that will feature conversations on what has already been achieved, what needs to be done, and who needs to be engaged to ensure we meet the commitment to end SGBV by 2026. 

Moderator: Marion Ogeto, Associate Program Officer, ESV, Equality Now
