Reply To: Reflect and discuss: VAW prevention principles

Elizabeth Washika

    The program involved the women and girls from inception – shaping up of the program and kept on receiving their inputs, suggestions althrough and the program kept holding meetings with them and sharing feedback as an accountability measure.
    Gender -power dynamics was analysed and used to come up with strategies of addressing VAW
    Analysis of the different things around women and girls that exposes them to risks was undertaken and used to come up with prevention interventions and response mechanisms for those affected.
    safety of women and girls was a key fundamental principle that was ensured at all steps
    individuals who worked for the project had a reflection of their beliefs, behaviours and attitudes around gender, power and how that would affect the implementation of the program and had to address it.
