Ending Gender Based Violence

NSI joined the international community in commemorating 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence which began on November 25th to proceed through December 10th. Gender-based violence is endemic in the communities in which we work and international condemnation and attention of gender-based assaults help greatly in changing the culture and shaming perpetrators in our beneficiary communities.

NSI has worked for over 10 years in Sub-Saharan Africa, bringing women together to mobilize and inspire them towards financial autonomy, education and psychological emancipation from circumstances that marginalize or abuse them.The women’s groups we helped form in Cameroon, Uganda and Zambia wholeheartedly condemn and work to bring about an end to gender-based violence within their groups and in their communities as a whole.

They and our staff stand together with the international community in advocacy for the battered, abused and undervalued victims of gender-based who often times do not have a voice within their own communities, being the casualties of archaic custom, poverty and violent partners, employers, relatives and/or parents.

With education, mobilization and your support we will continue to emancipate and empower the most vulnerable.
