Empower a caregiver...Reduce Gender Based Violence
Jul 28, 2022


From January to June 2022, out of the 42 survivors who visited the psychosocial unit of Olive Community Development Initiative, it was discouvered at least 76% of them have experienced psychological violence in which they could not speak about it.

As a result, OCDI organised a support group meeting with 25 caregivers who have experience violence before in order to restor their self esteem and empower them with necessary skills and information to access justice.

Furthermore, a session on self esteem reflection was held, in which they were encouraged to obtain certain skills that can be able to sustain them. The seesion was on how they can stand up for themselves, speak up against violence perpetrated towards them or those under them and also act as a voice in their respective communities.

In conclusion, the women were given opportunity to express themselves; Mrs S said she appraciated the program and that she feels more empowered to face any challenge that comes her way.

Another participant, Mrs A said that justice is most times been delayed as a result of inadequate information but now she has the right information to access justice on time.
