Ending Violence Against Women

Ending Violence Against Women is a multimedia exhibit and resource that I came across this morning, while doing research. As stated on the website:

"This exhibit can be used as both an advocacy and programming tool. It documents UNFPA’s experience in the field supporting projects that address violence against women in its many forms. Designed for both the general public and development practitioners, it documents approaches that can be used to confront this problem on a larger scale."

fight against violence:a challenge

Congratulation it's a very interesting website.
fight against violence against women and girls in Africa is very difficult because victims are afraid to talk about it. But I think that training people who can convince victims to talk is a very good approach.(my english is not very good)

FIGHT AGAINST WOMEN AND GIRLS RIGHTS.

Hey Claudia,
I agree with you, am fighting against women and girls rights violations at grassroots level in Kenya, i mean the rural women, it becomes very difficult for most of them withdraw, preferring the kangaroo courts which involves clan members. They are scared of breaking the silence because of fearing the church, clan, and the society at large. Stereotypes are also playing a big role. Most women do not know their rights hence take violations as normal in our lives hence not reporting many cases. The traditional beliefs and how we are socialized as women in the society is just very unfair to us women.
A lot should be done, as women no one will talk for us, we must come out, stop violations against women and girls. We are human beings. We need space.

VIOLENCE AGAINST ORPHANS IN KENYA.

Orphans are having no one to turn to........
after loosing their parents, the same same relatives, for example, uncles, and step brothers come in, start taking everything that can help these children.
WHEN CHILDREN ARE MOURNING,THEIR RELATIVES ARE BUSY CARRYING GOODS, GRABBING LAND AND ALL SORTS OF ITEMS, LEAVING THE ORPHANS WITH NOTHING.
Clan members are of no help, the government is the worst.
It is suffering, no one to take them to school, hence many dropouts. Health is also an issue, and all basic needs that a child needs becomes a problem.
Orphans are human beings, they have rights just like any other person.
