#ExchangeForEquality – Youth Encounter with Kenya
#ExchangeForEquality is an international youth exchange project between young people from Berlin / Germany and Nairobi / Kenya. The focus of the project is on SDG5: Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.
Through joint online workshops and 16-day visits to Nairobi and Berlin, we explored the realities of life of girls and women in both countries – for example in politics, in the home environment or in education. The participants dealt with what “gender equality” means and what their role can be in achieving real gender equality. Cultural differences in the perception of gender equality were of particular interest.
The participants worked together to develop “digital stories” that reflect experiences on SDG5 in Kenya and Germany gained during the project. As part of the UN “16 Days Against Violence” 2022, these digital stories were published.
The project offered motivated young people from both countries the opportunity to actively participate in the achievement of the SDG5 milestones as part of the Development Agenda 2030.
