Update No. 1

  • Conduct awareness-raising sessions on Gender-Based Violence (GBV), Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (PSEA), and Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) through Community sensitization and community conversations and celebration of international days.

Our ongoing project has successfully reached out to a total of 22,410 community members, providing them with crucial information on Gender-Based Violence (GBV), Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH), and Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (PSEA). Through a series of engaging initiatives, our primary goal is to raise awareness within the community and foster a supportive environment for survivors.

Key Messages:

The community has been enlightened with essential messages surrounding GBV, emphasizing that it is a direct violation of human rights and, crucially, not the survivor’s fault. The educational outreach underscores the preventive measures that can be taken, ensuring survivors have the right to access information and support services. Importantly, our messaging reinforces the idea that silence is not an option in addressing GBV, as it impacts everyone within the community.

Awareness-Raising Initiatives:

To effectively convey these messages, we employed various awareness-raising sessions, including community sensitization programs and community conversations. Our dedicated outreach workers played a vital role, utilizing megaphones to extend the reach of our messages. By engaging the community through these dynamic methods, we aimed to enhance awareness of GBV and its profound impact.

Impact on Service Improvement:

Our efforts extend beyond awareness-building; they are strategically designed to enhance the services available to survivors. By increasing awareness within the community, we empower outreach workers to provide more effective GBV response services. This, in turn, contributes to creating a more compassionate and supportive network for survivors seeking assistance.
