Reply To: Reflect and discuss: VAW prevention principles

Mercy James

    Hello team,
    In my case, I have just begun to work in a VAW programme.
    However, what I can clearly state I have seen accountability to women and girls being employed where they are involved and brought on board on the discussion table from planning all the way to implementation. Specific risk factors that make women more vulnerable to violence are identified that has informed the development of targeted interventions to reduce these risk factors and enhance women’s safety. Inclusivity and intersectionality is also being utilized a lot at my work place as I see all sorts of women and girls are engaged. No discrimination of whatever sort is evident.
    At my work place, a Centre for women and girls is being built. This Centre shall provide a safe space for the women and girls to receive both prevention and response services alongside empowerment and mentorship.
