Embassy Nairobi Promotes Rights of the Girl Child

In honor of the International Day of the Girl Child, October 11, PAS Nairobi partnered with the Kenyan Federation of Women Lawyers to host a symposium for 40 community leaders titled “Women’s Empowerment Starts with Girl’s Empowerment.” The participants, who live and work in a central Nairobi slum, learned about the Kenyan laws that protect children’s rights and how to communicate with parents about the rights of their girl children.  During the forum, the community leaders vowed to work to reduce children’s gender based violence and early marriages and to promote girl child education in Kenya.
