The Catholic University of Eastern Africa (CUEA) through the Department of Research, in collaboration with Actionaid International Kenya held a two day workshop on 28th and 29th January 2014, on Transforming Girls Education in a Violence Free Environment, at the University. The researchers training and the consequent baseline survey data collection commencing on January 30th to 9th February 2014, marks the beginning of the two year project funded by the

Department of International Department (DFID), also known as UKAID.

According to Mr. Sam Oando, from the Research Department at the University, the project “Transforming Girls Education in a Violence Free Environment” seeks to understand and address the root causes and consequences of violence against girls, and its impact on the enjoyment of their rights to and in education.

Discussing the Child Protection Policy that is based on the UN Convention on Rights of the Child Principals, Ms. Joan Marende, National Project Manger, Actionaid International Kenya, observed that forms of child abuse and exploitation include: emotional, physical, social, sexual and neglect. She further defined children in difficult circumstances as those “children for whom there is an apparent threat to life or an emergency situation.”

CUEA in partnership with Actionaid shall work with a team of researchers, from different parts of Kenya and from various faculties including the Faculty of Education in the University coordinated by the Department of Research. This project shall be implemented simultaneously in five different regions in Kenya. These are: Nyarongi (Homa Bay County), Kuria (Migori County), Kishushe (Taita Taveta County), Kamuthe (Garissa County) and Marafa (Malindi County).
