To collectively denounce and commit to actions against VAWG and FGM

During the launching ceremonies, fivepublic events will be conducted. More five subsequent public events will be conducted to intensify awareness raising about violence against women and girls in Kween and Moroto districts. The aim of the public events is to rally public support to collectively denounce and commit to actions against VAWG and FGM.

Public events are large events held in open places where people come in large numbers to have fun while learning more about important issues within their communities. The VAWG prevention public events will include demonstration marches through the villages, radio drama (soap opera), and VAWG prevention community theatre.

The Key theme will be Every Girl Counts. What Action will you take to Keep  Girls in School and safe in the community? (The aim of this theme is to build community trust in the VAWG prevention activities by recognizing the injustices women and girls experience  which will eventually enable community members recognise FGM as one of the injustices)

Below are the guiding questions to facilitate the learning process;

  1. Do majority of girls in your community access education and complete school? What are the barriers to girl’s completion of education? (Probe for barriers at home, school, community and in transport?)
  2. Do you see or know girls who have conceived while at school? How are they treated?
  3. What are the benefits of girls completing school?(probe for benefits at individual and community level)
  4. What other forms of violence are committed against girls and women in this community? What are the consequences to girls/women?
  5. Are girls and young women encouraged to participate in all activities (at home, school, communities) as their male counterparts are? What activities exclude girls and why?
  6. What actions can adults (parents, guardians, teachers, lecturers, religious leaders, opinion leaders, elders, grandmothers, traditional birth attendants etc.) do to prevent violence against women and girls?
  7. What can girls and boys do to prevent violence against girls in school and at home?
