Challenge

Every hour two women are beaten in Pakistan, according to an estimate by HDF, a local NGO. In urban slums and rural areas women are not considered as equal to men. In Pakistan we have a male dominated society and sometime even in urban and educated families we see women facing abuse. Majority of mind set says that, 'Women are for sex, cooking and house work'. The root causes of this problem are; illiteracy, false practices of olden days, dominancy mind-set, use of alcohol/drugs and unemployment

Solution

CGDC is a corporate member of Restored UK, an international alliance of organizations working on VAW and domestic abuse prevention. The project will enable the participating churches to learn how church can challenge the abusive behavior? Do's and Don'ts while supporting a victim, How to talk with perpetuator? How to recognise the warning signs of domestic abuse? CGDC will organize a national conference in March 2013, Advocacy on domestic abuse and income generation activities for rural women

Long-Term Impact

National Conference will highlight the silent issue of domestic abuse among NGOs, Churches and Civil Society and initiate a dailogue within the society. The project will focus on women empowerment by income generation and awareness of harms of domestic violence in wider rural communities.
