CGG and GNWP Conclude Capacity-Building Workshop for Women in Sierra Leone

Campaign for Good Governance (CGG) and the Global Network for Women Peacebuilders (GNWP) recently concluded a two-day Training of Trainers (ToT) workshop for women in Freetown, Sierra Leone.

The workshop focused on localizing Women, Peace, and Security (WPS) resolutions and implementing the Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment (GEWE) Act, with the aim of empowering women community leaders to drive positive change in their communities.

The event, held at the prestigious LACS Villa Hotel, brought together ten women community leaders who were eager to enhance their skills and knowledge in advancing peace, gender equality, and women’s empowerment at the grassroots level.

The presence of esteemed guests, including Dr. Isata Mahoi, Minister of Gender and Children’s Affairs, added further significance to the occasion.

Dr. Mahoi delivered an inspiring address, emphasizing the power of women working together to actualize the pillars of WPS as a means to achieve gender equality and women’s empowerment. Her words resonated deeply, highlighting the crucial role women play in fostering peace and driving social progress.

Throughout the workshop, participants engaged in dynamic discussions and collaborative group work sessions. They explored various strategies for investing in communities to advance women’s rights and opportunities, laying the groundwork for meaningful change.

This initiative, made possible by the generous support of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), exemplifies a commitment to promoting gender equality and peacebuilding in Sierra Leone.

By equipping women leaders with essential skills and knowledge, CGG and GNWP aim to empower them to become effective agents of change in their communities.

As the workshop concluded, participants left with renewed inspiration and determination to apply their newfound insights and expertise in driving positive change.

CGG and GNWP remain steadfast in their dedication to supporting women’s empowerment and advancing the agenda of peace and equality in Sierra Leone. Through collaborative efforts and sustained engagement, they strive to build a more inclusive, resilient, and equitable society where the rights and voices of women are upheld and celebrated.
