Political Enlightenment

PGI was very vocal on the current debate of women representation in the leadership position both at the National, regional and county. As you are aware under the new constitution women representation at the parliament should be 1/3 yet its formula had brought some issues and the Government and others against wanted to amend the constitution but with support PGI received in identifying potential women leaders, training and linking them to the national women, some of the women we training took part in that debate by strongly condemning the opposes of the 1/3 women representation in parliament.

We Identify, train and link potential girl's leaders and women aspirants in the county on seeking for leadership position in the county, region and national level. It's a program to identify women who are political active to participate in the coming election for proper representation of women in the county and constituency politics. 26 women were identified some who have previous vied for political position and other who are new to the politics. The main positive and direct result observed in this training was their participation in the current debate of the constitution amendment for women representation. .
