On the 31st October 2018, the Association of War Affected Women (AWAW), sponsored by USAID Global Communities, held the 18th Anniversary Celebrations of UNSCR 1325 in Kandy, Sri Lanka.
The purpose of the event was to explore the opportunities and challenges in implementing the UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security in Sri Lanka. In particular, it is AWAW’s opinion that the women of Sri Lanka must have their voices heard and become an integral part of the processes for reconciliation carried out and implemented by the Government.
Ninety-five people, including Sinhalese and Tamil women and men, attended the celebration.
