On July 30 and 31, a workshop was held in Kampala on the evaluation of the women, peace and security program, which program is included in resolution 1325. Security Council Resolution 1325 stresses the importance of women's full and equal participation in conflict prevention, conflict resolution and peace-building and peace-keeping. It calls on Member States to ensure that women participate fully, on an equal footing with men, in all efforts to maintain peace and promote peace and security, and urges all actors to women's participation and to take into account gender parity in all areas of peacebuilding. To achieve lasting peace, we need the voices of women. From conflict prevention and resolution to post-conflict reconciliation and economic recovery processes. This is how the woman peace and security program. This workshop was for the interest of Burundi and the Democratic Republic of the Congo organized by GNWP with funding from Cordaid. In this training we studied the new methods of data collection that will facilitate the evaluation and materialization of Resolution 1325 in our local communities. The workshop was enriched by 3 panels: for the representatives of the government, for the representatives of the civil society and for the girls ambassador for peace. As a girl ambassador for peace and worldpulse ambassador, I presented the work that has been done since my time in the fight for the advancement of women in my community.
