    Think about a violence prevention programme you work on (or one that you’re familiar with). How do you use each of the violence against women prevention principles in this programme?

    1. Accountable to women and girls
    2. Based in a gender-power analysis
    3. Inclusive and intersectional
    4. Prioritising the safety of women and girls
    5. Starting with ourselves

    All VAW prevention principles are not used at the some level depending on project targets


    Ensuring the project beneficiaries are listened to, their needs are incorporated into programs and feedback provided to them

    Ensuring that the power differences are analyzed to avert imbalances in power and also providing equitable resources and opportunities for men and women

    Ensuring all our programs respond to the needs of all our beneficiaries irrespective of gender, colour, disability status, sexual orientation

    Designing and implementing prevention programs that do not lead to harm, programs that ensure integrity for women and girls and also assuring confidentiality for survivors of violence

    Ensuring that we take care of our mental health needs while providing services to the wounded clients so as to avert burnout and vicarious trauma


    The VAW prevention principles are pivotal to safeguard women and girls in our programs


    Am stuck, cant move beyond this section, any help from anyone. I wrote to the admin last week with no response
