    Physical, Sexual, Emotional and Economic violence’s are very common in most communities around the world and not in Mercy’s community only. In Mercy’s community we saw that a girl as young as 15 years old was forced to get marinade because she is pregnant and Mercy herself is also the victim of economic violence where the husband takes all the money that she earned after selling some goods at the market and in return she was been given little amount of money to manage the house Not only that, but also beating and shouting to her in the presence of their kids . As such, prevention can be very important because it can help end of VAW not only that but it can also clear the misconception that it is normal in the family for a man to beat his wife
