2013 VOF Week 1
In my country Kenya I have witnessed violence on women. Women are regarded as regarded as only to be seen and never be heard in the community. They are beaten and abused and denied proper education, jobs, and other. Women empowerment could get them out of these sufferings. Education is always the key to success when a woman is educated and has a paying job, the beating and mistreatment will not occur. The few who are working do not suffer from this.
The badly hit ones are the jobless, the housewives and the illiterate ones. We are there urging women to take advantage of the free education offered by the Government to gain some basic knowledge. Thus, reduction on violence in the near future.
Provision of good institutions in rural areas of Kenya will ease the problem as most of the women will gain knowledge especially in ICT to have them equipped with skills for possible ways of earning a living in future. Such Networking will get together women globally for sharing ideas and solutions to such problems.
