The CARE Project has been delivering essential training on fundamental interview principles to be used on the ground in Kenya, working in partnership with the Wangu Kanja Foundation, the Survivors of Sexual Violence Network Kenya and UN Women. These interviewing tools are vital in documenting cases and gathering evidence to prove these crimes are occurring, establish patterns of offending and identify serial offenders. Previously these principles did not exist in humanitarian contexts because resources are minimal, therefore this project is crucial. By extensively training the users of these tools they can successfully collect testimonial accounts whilst also preserving and protecting memory evidence. Thus enabling survivors to achieve the justice they deserve. Survivors from Kisumu, Vihiga, Bungoma and Mount Elgon in Kenya have been participating in this training programme as can be seen in the gallery below. We are pleased that this training is helping build survivor's confidence as well as competence in delivering interviews. Additionally, we are proud that this training is bringing survivor's together, particularly in the case of Bungoma and Mount Elgon, which is a major hub for survivors following the violence of the last election. This training is crucial for them in preparation for the upcoming election in 2022.
