Challenge

In Mongolia, the majority of reported domestic violence incidents are perpetrated against victims aged between 25-29. The majority of female students report having experienced sexual harassment (a form of GBV) at some point during their secondary or tertiary studies . To lower occurrence and increase reporting of such behaviors it is essential to educate secondary students on gender based violence.

Solution

The project has three objectives 1. shift community attitudes towards and acceptance of domestic violence by increasing understanding of gender based and domestic violence 2. increase accessibility of services including help lines and shelters to victims by explaining how to seek help and promoting the details of helplines if you have been a victim of domestic and sexual violence 3. By organizing community activities raise people's awareness on the issue of gender based violence

Long-Term Impact

The projects will share anti-domestic and GBV with up to 10,000 individuals. Running a social media campaign will increase awareness into the issues of violence against women, the laws about GBV in Mongolia and the services available to victims. The project is likely to lead to increased reporting rates of domestic and gender based violence due to increased awareness of women's rights, and an improved understanding by victims of the services available and the processes of seeking help.
