Women Change Makers

Women Change Makers

The world today sees women excelling in a variety of fields, from exploring the universe as astronauts to even leading nations; there are few areas that are left uncharted. Women are believed to be the largest untapped reservoir of talent in the world. With perseverance and determination, women around the world strive to prove themselves in order to reach the pinnacle of success.

Women have not been left behind in the peace and security sector. In fact, the UN Security County Resolution 1325 stressed the importance of women’s equal and full participation as active agents in peace and security. However, this role is rarely highlighted and not deeply appreciated in the society.

It is on this basis that Amani Women Network has rolled out the Women Change Makers initiative whose main aim is to:

  1. Identify women who have contributed to the peace of their communities
  2. Understand the stories of women working in peace while delineating their key contributions
  3. Share the stories of women changing their communities towards a more peaceful society
