Women Feel Empowered to Speak Out

In the last three months, this team, working on gender-based violence, has had a profound effect on the lives of 20 local women who received their training on women's rights. These beneficiaries report that they no longer feel afraid to come forward when they experience domestic abuse or denial of their rights. They no longer feel they must suffer in silence. 

The Relax team has also bought airtime on local radio to broadcast public service announcements to help end gender-based violence. Additionally, they were able to purchase and distribute 23 pigs and piglets to local women in order to help alleviate poverty and malnutrition by providing manure for crops.
