Mission Statement

The Youth & Gender-Based Violence (YGBV) project aims to reduce GBV by means of creating awareness and educating youth about the causes and effects of GBV. We believe this will help youth cultivate attitudes that do not condone any form of GBV in the long run.

1. Create gender activism among youths, especially schools learners
2. Help both genders learn to have control over their own bodies and break cultural
practices that impede such control
3. Engage both genders in GBV prevention
4. Raise young people awareness on GBV in the virtual space
5. Constitute a Knowledge resource for the public and the victims
