"Enough is Enough"

Grandmothers Receiving Training
Grandmothers Receiving Training

The Sexual and Gender-Based Violence (SGBV) team continues to fight alongside the community to reduce and end SGBV in and around the Nyaka community. Grandmother groups are frequently being taught how protect their grandchildren, especially girls, who are the most vulnerable to sexual assault and particularly at this time while schools are closed Grandmothers are taught the dangers of early marriages, pre-marital sex, teenage pregnancies, and to recognize signs of domestic violence. 

In addition to grandmothers, we are also focused on training  grandfathers. We are teaching them about SGBV prevention, equal rights as well as gender and power, with the aim of grandfathers becoming community champions at grassroots level. These men will act as advocates against violence towards women and children in our communities. 

We also talk to grandmothers and grandfathers about how men and women respecting each other can spread the SGBV message, across the whole community, that “Enough is Enough”.

Between July and September over 3,500 community members were able to receive education on Gender Based/sexual violence by Nyaka’s SGBV team and external trainers. Since 2015, we’ve educated an estimated 418,977 community members about SGBV.
