The Association of War Affected Women in partnership with Global Communities proposed the implementation of a project in the key aim of strengthening democracy and good governance in Sri Lanka by reinforcing cooperative relationships across divides and increase the participation of women in peace and reconciliation processes.
The project will be mainly implemented through working towards the advancement of women of all ages and all strata of life including women with special needs as well as women who are indigenous and living in rural as well urban areas. Also it will train women on women peace and security (WPS) agenda enabling them to take UNSCR 1325 to the grassroots so that this will enable them to mitigate conflicts at the community level and earn respect from the local population whereby they can enhance their ability to be leaders at various level addressing issues which are hindrance for the full advancement and equal participation of women. And through their agency achieving sustainable peace through the implementation of a comprehensive reconciliation process whereby social cohesion will be the norm of the day.
