UoN Hosts a Gender Based Violence Symposium

Universities in the country have been challenged to provide safer campuses to students to enable them pursue their academic endeavours without worrying about insecurity that breeds gender based violence and the like.

This was the said when a four days symposium on gender based violence was held at the UoN and organized by Sema GBV. SEMA – (Mapenzi bila chuki) which translates to Speak out –(Love without hate) is the fifth pillar in the Kenya Gender Based Violence Partnership (KGBVP) program which seeks to address attitudes and prevent stereotypical thinking around gender issues, facilitate behaviour change by overcoming negative gender norms, and advocate for policies that promote gender inclusion in the communities, campuses, and secondary schools.
