Kenyatta University-based women’s economic empowerment Hub partnered with Life Bloom Services International to conduct a research that was meant to address GBV as a constraint to women’s work, and the Impact of programmes and initiatives addressing GBV as a constraint to women’s economic empowerment.
The research done in 2022, involved women beneficiaries of Life Bloom, who also served as representatives for Nakuru County. The research objectives were; to determine the effectiveness of services offered by selected GBVRC/ GVRC/ RRRPs in facilitating the recovery of GBV Survivors, to establish the economic cost of GBV on women survivors who had graduated from selected GBVRCs/GVRC/ RRRP before 2020, and to establish the extent to which skills and experiences gained from the selected GBVRCs/ GVRC/ RRRPs led to women’s economic empowerment.
The report findings were presented in 2023 which will inform impact programmes and initiatives addressing the economic empowerment of GBV survivors moving forward. Please follow the link below to read the report presentation.
