DOVENET attends a Two-day Capacity

Mar 27, 2020

Violence Against Women & Girl (VAWG) is a global pandemic that affects 1 in 3 women in their lifetime and this issue is not only devastating for survivors of violence and their families but also entails significant social and economic costs. Failure to address this issue also entails a significant cost for the future.
One characteristic of VAWG is that it knows no social or economic boundaries and affects women and girls of all socio-economic background and this needs to be addressed in both developing and developed countries.
Decreasing VAWG requires a community-based, multi-pronged approach, and sustained engagement with multiple stakeholders. Women’s Rights Movement and Civil Society Organizations have been obligated to create widespread awareness of the incidences of such violations.

The Women’s International Leagues for Peace & freedom (WILFP) Nigeria is implementing the Spotlight Initiative Project in Ebonyi State under the EU-UN Spotlight Initiative by conducting training workshops to strengthen the capacity of CSOs/MDAs/Coalitions and other stakeholders for the ease of the project implementation.
The Daughters of Virtue & Empowerment Initiative (DOVENET) was opportuned to be a part of the 2-day training workshop which took place on the 16th and 17th of March 2020 in Cirenes Hotels, Kpiripkiri, Abakaliki, Ebonyi State.

The training aimed at empowering the participant with key knowledge in Understanding of Sexual and Gender-Based Violence, Understanding Gender Norms, Gender Stereotypes, Understanding Violence against Women and Girls. Group sessions and discussions were implemented during the course of the training to build and enhance the capacity of the CSOs, MDAs, Networks, Coalitions to advocate for women and girls.
The training was a huge success as all participants benefited a whole lot as their capacity to prevent all forms of violence against women and girls and advocacy for women and girls’ right was strengthened.
