The training impacted participants with knowledge and skills in the integration of gender Justice-gender mainstreaming approaches in peace-building and conflict transformation, enhanced participant’s understanding of the effects of Gender-Based Violence, mobilized a collective and strong effort to campaign against Gender-Based Violence especially in critical times of conflict and cemented the integration of gender mainstreaming in the SSCC APP strategy and ensured religious leaders and women actively participate in activities aimed at inculcating and building peace and reconciliation in their communities. 

The training also boosted ICC leaders with knowledge and skills on UNSCR 1325 on gender equality promotion and enabled the youths and women to develop an action plan, empowering them to become agents and ambassadors of peace in their respective locations.
