Once again Robertsfors Municipality is in Machakos County working together with the county government on gender equality within the framework of Municipal Partnership Program (MPP) funded by Swedish International Centre for Local Democracy (ICLD). Once again Robertsfors Municipality is impressed by the partners progressive work – this time for gender equality and gender-based violence in particular. The focus is on governance and capacity building with representatives for the whole society involved through established committees. Robertsfors Municipality will also push their work to a new level through the collaboration with Machakos County Government as well as other programs. The work for gender equality is as important in Sweden as in Kenya.
