Gender Based Violence

Violence is a problem that affects the peace and humility of the society. This is particulary a problem when it is at it's lowest level that being the family level. This has led to breaking of homes not forgetting the loss of life of the victims in the fiuds or being seriously injured which is so diverstating. This has also led to psychological effect on the growth of children who are victims of the family and gender based violence. Due to this, Aphia 2 launched a programme to educate on the effects and concequences of gender based violence in the society. this led to the proper conduct of people in the society and reduction of gender based violence in the society.
