Prevention of sexual and gender based violence (SGBV)

Gender inequalities in Lango:We work with men and women, boys and girls to fight back at gender inequalities that still affect women and girls. In particular, we provide information and support services to protect women and girls’ rights to Land, Education and Health.

Sexual violence: Women and girls in Lango face varying degrees of sexual violence. Their everyday life is confronted with rape, assault, early and child marriages. We work with the CPC and CPP and engage women, girls, families, churches, schools, police and courts of Law to popularize prevention of sexual violence in the region. We collaborate and support local government structures and traditional or clan leadership to strengthen prevention as well as provide support to survivors. We run a counseling and guidance desk for survivors of SGBV in Lira. See who is at the desk today.
