Communication Materials


The goal of this group is to enhance member’s skills in developing ethical and effective VAW prevention communication materials. The group also produces relevant communication tools for VAW prevention. Activities include adapting existing materials, and skills building events for the development of communication materials. To date the group has adapted the In Her Shoes toolkit to the Sub-Saharan context, and conducted two trainings for over 60 organizations in 2008 and 2011.


In 2011, members of the Communication Materials Action Group met in Kampala for a special, hands-on training that involved participants creating their own materials! The 28 participants successfully created 5 new communication materials that are now available for all members of the Network to print and use in your prevention programs. The materials cover the areas of gender roles, power, provision of PEP services, violence free homes, and bride price! We encourage our members to download and use these engaging communication materials as one method for discussing these important topics in your organizations and communities.


This group is coordinated by Raising Voices.
