Millennium Fellowship Project: Nuru Yetu

Nuru Yetu is aimed at empowering girls that have been victims of gender-based violence either directly or indirectly. It has has two primary aims. The first aim is to offer mentorship to people who have experienced gender based violence. This is with the objective of educating them on ways in which they can empower themselves and consequently facilitate the ease of their recovery from the experience. The second aim is to sensitize those who have not experienced gender based violence through educating them on the different forms of gender based violence, the signs of abuse as well as the steps to follow in the event that they know someone who has experienced or is currently experiencing gender based violence. We also aim to elaborate on the various forms gender based violence can take. This will further educate people in the quest of increasing awareness on the issue. With this, the project, developed in conjunction with Khadija Taib Ahmed will take effective steps towards the elimination of gender based violence in society.
