Women's Leadership and Inclusion in Peacebuilding

Believing that women's participation is essential to building sustainable peace and development, CAGEAD strives to build the capacities of women in leadership so as to facilitate their involvement in grass root leadership and decision making.

CAGEAD intends to break the biases surrounding women involvement and participation in peace initiative despites the fact that they are those who bear the highest brunt of conflicts and wars. The key objective of this area of intervention is to empower women leaders and bring out the potentials in them to drive community initiatives that will bring sustainable peace in their communities.

We work to increase women's access to decision-making positions, to promote gender-sensitive policies, and to build the capacity of women peacebuilders.
