IOM SSR Gender Inclusive Security: “Nothing for Us, Without Us”

Sustainability Funds Management Training for Peace Huts In June of 2018, the Inclusive Security Community Training on Gender and SSR Training and the establishment of eight (8) Peace Huts from border communities with the purpose of promote gender equality in the security sector and enhance the capacity of the national justice and security institutions to prevent and respond to all forms of violence against women. 

 As a result of the inclusive security training for the established Peace Huts, the Peace huts showed their capabilities to drive the gender and inclusive security agenda in supporting actions that can directly influence the successful implementation of 1325 National Action Plan. Implementing the LNAP will be an important milestone for Peace huts in Liberia and therefore, the need to sustain their momentum is very crucial. IOM and her Partners under the SSR Gender Inclusive Security; Nothing for Us, Without Us is supporting the Peace huts to accomplish these objectives at community level through the building of Women’s capacity and their ability for ownership of the drive. It is important that all gender and security actors adopt a sustainable approach for efficient functioning of Peace huts in such a way that they can continue to buttress all national and international efforts in reducing the gaps of gender equality in Liberia.

Since its establishment, Peace huts have benefitted immensely from United Nations funded projects, enabling them to become somehow equipped and capacitated thereby enabling them to render services and implement certain key activities that are chief to peacebuilding and women security at community levels. This IOM SSR Gender Inclusive Security: “Nothing for Us Without Us” is designed to further build on past supports and interventions provided the Peace Huts women to prepare them to be able to respond to their concerns in terms of their community Peace and Security. It is against this background that a sustainability plan was developed. The plan includes training to further instill a sense of common ownership in the Peace Huts, secure community buy-in, build emotional ties, sidetrack disruptive third-party interlocutors, strengthen local resilience against violence against women, such that they continue advocating for increasing gender inclusion within the security sector as an integral part of the community building, etc. One of the main purpose of the project is to support women’s dialogues in promoting gender equality in the security sector and enhance the capacity of the national justice and security institutions to prevent and respond to all forms of violence against women.
