About Peace Initiative Kenya Project (PIK)

Peace Initiative Kenya (PIK) project is preventing Gender Based Violence

(GBV) in Kenya by improving national and county-level Gender Based

Violence (GBV) service delivery systems and policy implementation. The

PIK project is funded by United States Agency for International

Development (USAID) and implemented by the International Rescue

Committee (IRC), in partnership with local organizations; Rural Women’s

Peace Link (RWPL), Sauti Ya Wanawake – Pwani, Health Care Assistance

Kenya (HAK) through toll free GBV helpline 1195, Africa Women’s

Entrepreneurship Program (AWEP), Women’s Empowerment Link (WEL)

and African Woman and Child Feature Service (AWC).

The project covers 9 counties: Taita Taveta, Kwale, Mombasa, Kisumu,

Migori, Kisii, Uasin Gishu, Nandi and Trans Nzoia to improve GBV

prevention, as well as increase access and utilization of GBV services

through community outreach and other awareness raising efforts.

At the national level, the PIK project works closely with the National

Gender and Equality Commission (NGEC), Ministry of Devolution and

Planning-Directorate of Gender, Anti-Female Genital Mutilation (FGM)

Board and other civil society stakeholders to support the government in

creating an enabling environment for coordination of GBV prevention

and service provision.
