STORYLINE
Major Seynabou Diouf of the Senegal National Police was awarded today as the 2019 United Nations Female Police Officer of the Year.

Speaking at the award ceremony today (05 Nov) in New York, UN peacekeeping chief Jean-Pierre Lacroix congratulated Major Diouf and commended the dedication she performed in combating sexual exploitation and abuse.

Lacroix said, “in all our Missions, female officers are a key element in the sensitization and the delivery of training on Sexual Exploitation and Abuse,” adding that “this part of female officers networks, such as the one that Major Diouf leads in MONUSCO, they help prevent, counter and investigate SEA related offenses, advancing the Organization’s zero tolerance policy.”

Receiving the award, Major Seynabou Diouf of the Senegal National Police said, “nothing motivates one more than recognition for hard work. I feel motivated to do more and I promise to continue promoting women’s rights, speaking out against sexual gender-based violence, and also speaking out and fighting marginalization and discriminatory customary and religious practice targeted at women and girls.”

Major Seynabou Diouf is a UNPOL staff who has been serving in the United Nations Organization Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUSCO) since March 2017.

She is the Team Leader Task Force Sea-Welfare, Member of Gender Task force in charge of CRSV (Conflict Related Sexual Violence) and the president of the MONUSCO UNPOL women network.

In her role, Major Diouf has been acting internally and externally to address the issue of Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (SEA) in MONUSCO. She conducted sensitization campaigns in the guidance of the UNPOL components and local police officers. She also worked with the SEA victims and vulnerable women, assisting them to be self-dependent.

In Kiwanja, 80 km from Goma, the MONUSCO women network led by Major Diouf has assisted victims of sexual violence in their empowerment, by giving them sewing machines and accessories to enable them to learn a trade.
