Addressing the challenges faced by women and girls demands transformative structural change. ICO’s strategic collaboration Kumba 2, championed by Mayor Kay’s unwavering commitment to inclusion of women and empowerment, has birthed the Coordination Committee on Gender. This collaboration has been applauded by local press, for its forward-thinking approach in mainstreaming gender within local governance. 

At the heart of this partnership lies a shared commitment to amplifying women’s voices in decision-making processes, knowledge sharing, and sustainable civic engagement. Through the establishment of gender focal points within the Council, the Coordination Committee on Gender serves as a hub for driving gender-responsive policies and agendas at the grassroots level.

By harnessing the collective expertise of local stakeholders, including NGOs, law enforcement, traditional and religious leaders, and women’s advocacy groups, Kumba 2 Sub Divisional Council ensures that gender equality becomes more than just rhetoric, but a lived reality. Together, we pave the way for a brighter, more equitable future where every voice is heard and every individual empowered.
