16 Days of Activism
My name is Charlotte and I am the director of a project in Rwanda called Achieving a Better Life. We perform theaters around Kigali, the capital, about domestic violence and GBV to teach people that this violence is wrong.
GBV is a big problem in Rwanda. We did a baseline study, and found that about 70% of women experience some form of domestic violence. I have talked to many women in my community who are victims, and I felt compassion to change the situation.
On Friday, we will perform a theater on GBV as part of Rwanda's recognition of the 16 Days of Activism against GBV. We hope that this will show people that violence against women is wrong and that they need to change their behavior.
