VAW Emergency Response and Preparedness Skills Building Event Completed

Twenty-five Network members from eleven countries throughout the region (Nigeria, Cameroon, South Sudan, Democratic Republic of Congo, Mozambique, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Madagascar, Somalia, Zimbabwe) recently completed a training in addressing VAW within emergency situations. From the 19th to the 23rd of May, participants were equipped with skills to prepare for, launch, and support rapid, effective responses to VAW in crisis situations. Individuals will now take these skills back to their organizations where they will respond ethically and effectively to VAW within emergency situations. The International Rescue Committee (IRC) facilitated the training. If you are interested in future opportunities, join the Network’s VAW in Emergencies Thematic Action Group, also coordinated by IRC.
