Shalom-SCCRR has recently opened the Shalom Empowerment Center (SEC) addressing violence against women and children. This center is another important aspect of our outreach programmes, primarily attending to violence against women and children in the slum areas around Nairobi. However, its life giving services will be open to violence-affected populations from other areas.
The Center will give special attention to all forms of manifest and structural violence; inter-ethnic, inter-religious, domestic violence, sexual violence, among others. In doing so the Center will provide training on conflict transformation skills, peacebuilding techniques, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) healing approaches, and other relevant interventions to women and children suffering from violence. “Structural violence is present when human beings are influenced so that their somatic and mental realizations are below their potential realizations,” (Johan Galtung). Empowering women to be significant architects of their own security and development, actualizing their potential, whereby their human rights and dignity are respected and honored will be at the heart of the Center’s training programmes.
