About

GenEq is the gender equality and women’s empowerment committee of Peace Corps Benin. This site serves as our blog, and supplement to our  semi-annual printed newsletter.

It is our mission to create a conversation. A conversation that educates others to the power of all genders and all persons. A conversation that serves as a facility for a discussion of how to better serve and empower our communities. A conversation that creates a cultural exchange that does not always reassure us that we hold all the correct answers but rather forces us to reexamine our own biases.
