    The bad economic environment in my community would have created a similar situation to that of Mercy though a lot of strides have been made towards gender equality whereby both girls and boys are treated the same when it comes to educating them. With jobs hard to come by and with a high unemployment rate most men are stressed on economic issues which has made some of them to be violent, however Economic Strengthening programs involving men are proving to be a catalyst in reducing this violence.
