Violence Against Women Awareness Walk

Violence is posing a major challenge to social development and to the achievements of the targets agreed to in the Sustainable Development Goals. Violence against Women including sexual violence in the region is a dimension of the larger problem of crime and violence and continues to be a serious concern at the levels of community safety and citizen security.

While VAW attracts attention from government and non-government players, WE recognize that interventions seldom address the plight of the LBT woman who is already discriminated against and doubly vulnerable given inadequacies in our law and a fractured criminal justice system. As part of its thrust to raise awareness about VAW while creating a space for LBT women to be part of the conversation about an issue which disproportionately affects them, WE-Change hosts an awareness walk during the #16DaysofActivism annually.
