Raising Awareness On Gender Based Violence

ā€œIndeed you have brought us light in this training. We were entangled with rejection but (sic) now that we are a big group with right information given to us, there will be no more oppression based on our disabilities since we shall have a group for a strong voice.ā€ ā€“ GBV Survivor

Ā Trained facilitators were acquired to enlighten a total of 230 girls and women with disabilities in the districts of Koboko and Pader on the everlasting effects of Gender Based Violence (GBV) against vulnerable groups. Visual pictures and audio information translated to local languages were the materials used to equip Girls and Women with Disabilities knowledge about GBV, the referral systems in place in case of domestic violence and individual empowerment to demand for rights when it comes to accessing all state and judicial services.
