Say NO to Gender Based Violence.
Nearly 3 quarters of Uganda’s population are youths. Gender based violence affects this group of people amidst other #SRHR issues. Young people should be empowered with the skills and confidence to become agents of change in their own communities, challenging and preventing gender based violence where it affects them and their peers.
Schools have a role in improving young people’s knowledge and understanding of the nature of gender based violence and its root causes in the enforcement of gender norms and gender inequality.
Young girls are getting pregnant
, some are being abused at home, but the nation is going silent. We need to gear
our efforts to addressing the forms of Sexual Gender Based Violence in communities.
