Faith’s life has never been the same since 2013. She has questioned herself frequently on why she made the decision she made which affected her life tremendously. Lack of a job accompanied with basic education is not enough for her as a young woman living in Nairobi’s informal settlement of Kibera to live a normal life. Taking a stand to report an incidence of sexual abuse which took place her organization not only earned her enemies but caused her to lose the only source of income she has had for the last 5 years. It was 2 pm on Saturday when Faith reported to work to monitor an activity outreach activity for girls and young women which was taking place in organizations open conference centre. To her shock, she found one of the male field coordinators in a comprising position as if interrupting something with a girl who is a beneficiary of the organization’s projects. Three days later, two young women reported being forced to give sexual favours in order to be taken in as beneficiaries of the organizations projects. Women and girls living in informal settlements are prone to incidences of gender based violence because of their vulnerability seen in their low socio-economic status. In most informal settlements, young women sell themselves for less than a dollar hence why they can be easily exploited. As is a beneficiary of many capacity building opportunities offered by women led non-governmental organizations operating in Nairobi, Faith was taught to recognise, speak out and report incidences of gender based violence experienced by young women in her community. She was identified as a young woman who had the confidence to empower girls and young women in her community with knowledge, skills and information that will keep them safe from various forms of sexual abuse and sexual exploitation. Faith’s courage as well as knowledge and information gained over the year gave her strength to actively voice out her belief as a whistle blower who took the opportunity to speak on behalf of young women who could not speak for themselves. She lost many friends and colleagues who felt that if they sided with her, they would lose their jobs as well or the benefits they received from the organization or from the community. The Kenya Demographic Health Survey (KDHS) shows that 45% of women age 15 - 49 have experienced either sexual or physical violence. According to a 2014 report by the International Rescue Committee (IRC) in Kenya, the magnitude of gender based has been camouflaged by the social-cultural stigmatization associated with any attempt by the survivors to seek justice. However, this leaves the question where one wonders what happens to the reporters of gender based violence, especially if they themselves are vulnerable. Gender based violence is a human rights violation which continues unabated because silence. Reporters of gender based violence or witnesses of the vice do not always speak out because of the outcome once they make a report. In most instances, witness protection is never guaranteed, hence the increase in incidences of violence. This is something that affects women and girls all over the world. It is worse when the incidence occurs in a family setting. Women and men working to prevent or reduce incidents of gender based violence should actively promote protection of whistle blowers or reporters of GBV as a strategy to put an end towards all types of gender violence. This can be done well by influencing policies. I believe that as a community working together to promote the rights of women and girls, we can work together to address this issue which has been long overdue. I lost my job after reporting a case sexual abuse; however, it gave me courage and confidence to encourage other young men and women to speak out, therefore strengthening my leadership skills and increasing my confidence as an individual who is able to put words into action.
