1325 Policy Group is a Swedish non-governmental organization working for the full implementation of UNSCR 1325 and the women, peace, and security agenda nationally and internationally, particularly in conflict- and post-conflict areas. The objective is to strengthen civil society actors and others wanting to contribute to the implementation of UNSCR 1325 and women’s increased participation in all matters to do with peace and security, through capacity building.
Mission: 1325 Policy Group also aims to be a leading expert organization on the realization of UNSCR 1325 and function as an asset to other organizations working to implement the paragraphs of the resolution. The organization’s long-term vision is that women can participate in peace processes and conflict resolution to the same extent and on the same terms as men. 1325 Policy Group’s vision is also that peace processes and conflict resolution processes are transparent and inclusive of all stakeholders and instilled with a human security approach.

Girl Ambassador for Peace in DRC receives scholarship to study medicine!

We wish to congratulate Bénédicte, Girl Ambassador in South Kivu, for her scholarship in medicine! We are proud of your accomplishments!
“My dream is to become a gynaecologist doctor to help other women, especially in rural areas, that suffer from gynaecological health issues and that do not have access to medical services due to poverty and inability to reach hospitals. Following this situation affecting young women and girls in these regions (Mumosho), this continues to pull my heartstrings, I quickly understood that we need to act. I am certain that thanks to this scholarship for studying medicine from The Ring Project, that I continue to thank with all my heart, I will become a Congolese woman of service for other rural Congolese women.” —Bénédicte Maheshe Bulangalire, Girl Ambassador for Peace, South Kivu, DRC


Nous souhaitons féliciter Bénédicte, Fille ambassadrice au Sud-Kivu, pour sa bourse d’études en médecine! Nous sommes fières de tes accomplissements!
« Mon rêve est de devenir docteur gynécologue pour aider les autres femmes, surtout celles des milieux ruraux, qui souffrent des maladies gynécologiques et qui n’ont pas accès aux soins médicaux faute surtout de la pauvreté que de la distance vers les hôpitaux. À la vue de la situation des jeunes filles et femmes de ces milieux (Mumosho) et qui continuent à brûler ardement dans mon coeur, j’ai vite compris que nous devons agir. Je suis sure que grâce à la bourse d’études en médecine offerte par « the ring project », que je continue à remercier de tout coeur, je vais devenir une femme congolaise au service des autres femmes rurales congolaises. » Bénédicte Maheshe Bulangalire, Fille ambassadrice pour la paix, Sud-Kivu, RDC
