En d'autres mot; c'est une convention signée aux nations unies pour l'implication de la femme dans la prévention,protéction et participation de paix
Partant de cette definition,nous trouvons que pour l'utilisée dans notre groupe des filles ambassadrice ,il nous font une sensibilisation de la population ( communauté) en i nformant et en formant cette dernière sur le changement des mentalités, sensibilisé les autres femmes et filles qui vivent encore la coutume de lutter pour sortir de l'ignorance vers la connaissance et d'apparaître chaque fois dans tout ce que peut faire l'homme.

TRAINING OF YOUNG WOMEN ACTING AS AMBASSADORS FOR THE MAMAN SHUJA CENTER REGARDING RESOLUTIONS 1325 AND 1820 THAT TOOK PLACE JUNE 10 AND 11

We young women ambassadors for the Maman Shuja Center in Bukavu, DR Congo, are very happy to have received training on United Nations security resolutions 1325 and 1820 concerning the involvement of women in the search for peace and security. Many of us hadn't heard these resolutions discussed before, and we had the opportunity to understand that they are a political framework giving women, feminist NGOs, civil society, and governments a clear sense of direction regarding the integration of gender in the peace and reconstitution processes. In other words, this is a convention signed at the United Nations to involve women in prevention, protection, and the process of peace.
On the basis of this definition, we find that for the convention to be useful for our group of young women ambassadors, we need to raise people's awareness (in the community) and to inform and train them on changing mentalities, to raise awareness among other women and girls who are still experiencing the traditional battle to overcome ignorance and gain awareness, and to encourage every opportunity for men to participate.
The training made us more aware of how women and girls here continue to be victimized in many ways by war. In order to prevent this, we need to:
- Organize empowering work.
- Strengthen the intellectual abilities of women and girls.
- Do away with undervaluing women since they are equal to men.
- Etc.
As far as protection:
We should note that every person is responsible for their involvement in protecting the rights of women who face all kinds of sexual and sexist violence.
For example,
• To protect women against sexual violence and gender violence.
• To inform women about family planning with the aim of protecting their maternal and reproductive health.
As far as participation:
Women should participate at every decision-making level and every institutional level in all aspects of the peace process.
- Women should give their opinions in meetings and participate actively.
- Women have the right to inherit.
- Etc.
