Challenge

Violence against women and girls in Liberia contributes to enduring physical and mental harm while undercutting the ability of survivors and their families to engage in meaningful and productive lives. Although a Domestic Violence Act was passed in 2018 by the Liberian Government domestic violence still continue to rise. REACT Liberia Inc. is therefore proposing to undertake a 6-month awareness raising capacity building project for 300 women and Girls in Grand Gedeh County, Southeast Liberia

Solution

REACT Liberia will train Women, Girls, men and boys in Gender Based Violence prevention and response as well as community awareness and advocacy to help promote women's and Girls' rights and protection at the community level. This approach will help to address the issues of violence and exclusion of women in politics and decision making processes at the community level and promote women's and girls' rights.

Long-Term Impact

Women and Girls will be free from violence and will become active Citizens through participation in decision making processes at the Village, Town, Clan, Chiefdom, County and National levels. Women will make informed decisions and will regain self-respect and esteem.
