Information about the Women Empowerment team

At Centre for African Justice, Peace and Human Rights, we empower women who’ve migrated from Africa or different home countries to the Netherlands and are disillusioned or helpless, to the point it manifests incapacity to achieve their life/career goals. We also empower female entrepreneurs within the Netherlands who are encountering challenges setting up their small business with little or no knowledge about the Dutch Market. We achieve this by providing and connecting them with the tools that would enable them to achieve their highest potentials in life.


Our Research has shown that migration whether positive or negative has side effects on women. Many female migrants and refugees are exposed to unspeakable challenges; some of them have become victims of identity crisis, sexual and domestic abuse. No doubt, these dwindles their chances of having a successful career and a fulfilled life. In the same vein, lack of mentor ship, information, coaching and motivation in the face of these challenges has caused women residing in foreign lands to drop out of school, go into drugs or alcohol, give into trauma, depression and other forms of mental or psychological situations.

About Centre for African Justice, Peace and Human Rights

How best can people know their rights or claim same except through awareness, education and training. How best can people learn to maintain peace? How best can justice be promoted and applied? To an extent the answers to these questions revolve around information, education, campaign, capacity building, training and awareness. At Centre for African Justice, our objective is to promote justice, peace and human rights through information, education, advocacy, awareness, empowerment, training, outreach and capacity building in Africa and around the world. The objective of our project on sexual violence perpetrated against the male gender is to push for improved recognition and legal protection of male victims of sexual violence in Africa and around the world. We hope to create a community of male victims of sexual violence with the aim of empowering them (physically, economically, academically, emotionally, spiritually and psychologically). We believe that in the near future, such victims can serve as tools to break the silence surrounding sexual violence perpetrated against men and boys in the world.

Core activity
1) Prosecuting sexual violence perpetrated against the male gender (In conflict - and peace situations)
2) Legal research with possibility of field work
3) Capacity building of prosecutors, lawyers and judges in Africa
4) Women empowerment
5) Promotion of peace
6) Education
