Keeping in line with this year’s theme The Jennifer Riria Foundation will hold hybrid panel discussions that will aim to explore intervention pathways seeking to educate, inform, and support women and girls facing gender-based violence scenarios, systemically ignored by their families, communities, and local authorities
JRF’s main focus is on innovation which essentially is the disruption of a normal state of being. We are cognizant of the fact that even though the world needs change, it equally needs socially conscious innovators who not only strive to make the most out of their ideas but work to leave the world better than they found it.
JRF has centred this new approach on the Sustainable Development Goals; young women doing brilliant things around each SDG. The scale of what they are doing at the point of contact with JRF is not important, it is the solution it presents and the impact it can have when scaled sustainably.
The Covid 19 pandemic has affected GBV against Young Women and Girls on a massive scale, particularly in developing nations. Part of the Foundation’s core objectives is to ensure that through discussions such as the ones suggested, educate, inform, and ultimately improve the lives of young women and girls by helping them know that they are not powerless and that their voices are important and need to be heard.
