Combating Violence Against Girls and Young Women in the Great Lakes Region of Africa
A project focusing on women's violence in the great lakes region in Africa works with women to protect their physical and psychological integrity. They work through multiple avenues to achieve this including policy changes, access to resources (health, legal, psychosocial, and socio-economic reinsertion), and a program that involves and educates men.
The project is in its fourth year and intends to carry on through 2017.
What I find interesting about these efforts is the male involvement and how their involvement and influence will be long lived through self-initiated awareness groups. Changing men's paradigm of the view of women and having men educate men is a strong avenue towards change.
