Sexual and Gender-based Violence (SGBV) Awareness, Training and Care
At the community level, outreach events offer opportunities for women and girls to learn about SGBV, their rights to live free from violence and services available to survivors. During outreach events, teams use creative drama, pictures and information sessions to share. WHI trained social service providers, from the Department of Social Affairs Veterans and Youth and Department of Women’s Affairs and the Commune Committee of Women and Children. WHI reached women and girl survivors of violence through Enhancing Responses project to receive either full counselling and case management services, individual counselling, or were provided information about their rights and the services available to them. Some of the survivors received direct services through trained staff from the Department of Social Affairs Veterans and Youth and Department of Women’s Affairs.
