End Date*: 30 Jun 2010
Country: Sierra Leone Project Status: Financially Closed
  Participating Organization:   IOM - International Org Migration

Project Description:

The central logic of the intervention is to engage community women as well as female security personnel at the provincial District and chiefdom levels in a systematic dialogue on the SSR processes is Sierra Leone with a view to assessing its gender disaggregated impact particularly as it relates to opportunities for women’s full and active involvement in the governance of security, conflict prevention, peace building, sustainable development and democratization at the community level. The project shall target communities in the north, south and east particularly the boarder areas. The project seeks to compliment and add value to an on-going support to the ONS which provides training for security personnel but which failed to target women.


Immediate Objectives:

  • Create and interactive platform for community women, female security personnel and provincial and district security personnel
  • Empower key female security personnel and community women’s groups to mainstream gender perspectives in the newly decentralized security structures and operations e.g. DISECs, PROSECs
  • Sensitize community members to promote active participation of women in the security sector
