Date:  Friday 28 October 2022, Time: 0800 – 1600 hours
Place: Royal Tulip Canaan, Hurlingham Nairobi

KICTANet is pleased to launch module 5 of the Digital Enquirer Kit on Online Gender-Based Violence (OGBV). For the past nine months, KICTANet had been extensively involved in the development of the e-learning module with feedback from our stakeholders held on 14th February 2022, 27th April 2022 and 22nd May 2022 at various stages of production. The module explores themes of gender dynamics, forms of online gender-based violence, gendered hate speech, harms of OGBV and tips for coping with OGBV. 

Following our first Community of Practice Engagement on 27th June 2022, KICTANet will convene another round of participants as part of the module’s dissemination and localisation. This will be a full-day event with a special focus on the Digital Enquirer Kit modules and group exercises on OGBV in module 5. Finally, the participants will enroll for the Digital Enquirer Kit courses on the atingi platform in order to formally complete the course.
