The Women’s Agency in Keeping the Peace, Promoting Security or WePeace is a localization project of the UNSCR 1325, Women, Peace and Security, initiated by the Center for Peace Education-Miriam College (CPE) and supported by the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Manila. It aims at sharing capacities with selected community women on gender-responsive peacemaking and peacekeeping. Through the training, the women peacekeepers of WePeace have complemented the work of community peace and order councils through monitoring and documenting incidents of conflict, raising the discussion on and encouragement of reporting gender-based violence, and mediating community conflicts.
Concluding its first year of implementation, this publication documents WePeace’s training process, community stories, and training modules from four different areas across the country.
