Capacity building for women on conflict management and peacebuilding towards the 2010 District Assembly Elections

Workshop for women leaders

For women groups from political parties, NGOs, Community women and traditional women leaders and other interested parties in the communities.


Northern Ghana is plagued with number of inter and intra ethnic conflicts dotted at various parts of the region. Women and youth are the most affected in wars and conflicts. It is therefore important to sensitize northern Ghanaian women to be agents of peace in the communities especially in areas where there is relative peace. Women will be important agents due to the role in conflict management. In 2009, five workshops were organised and it is expected that in 2010 five more will be organised to reach much of the people in 5 different district and by that contribute to peaceful and transarten District Assembly Elections.

Recently, the explosive situation has been descrcribed in a press article (7 February 2010):
