Gender-based violence (GBV) violates the human rights and dignity of individuals, communities and whole societies. We work with local leaders (faith, traditional and youth) and community groups to apply social and behavior change strategies to foster attitudes, beliefs and norms that advance gender equity and social inclusion, and prevent and condemn GBV.
Our work with the dioceses of Aru and Bukavu addresses violence against women by increasing church and community participation in response to and awareness and prevention of violence.
