One of our student leaders in Eneza Clubs told us today that he is thankful for the knowledge he’s been learning in our clubs. Before, he didn’t realize that he was supporting sexist comments and harmful actions that perpetuate sexual violence. Now, he is strongly against acts that result in sexual or domestic violence in his community. He says that no one else is standing against the rampant violence in Kibera, so he wants to use his knowledge to create awareness about sexual violence. He also said that the experience in Eneza has been helpful because the topic of sexual violence is not in the academic curriculum, yet it is important to learn because affects us all.
From his participation in class, we know that he really wants to make a difference. We are glad to be providing a platform where he can learn and create strategies and approaches that will end violence in his community.
