Prevention of Violence against Women and girls (VAWGs)

Prevention of Violence against Women and girls (VAWGs)
WODEF seeks to support initiatives or interventions addressing sexual harassment, defilement and rape cases, physical, emotional, and psychological violence against women and girls; Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), child marriages, and teenage pregnancies.
WODEF works with the Local Implementing Partners (LIPs) to promote short-term and long-term interventions to provide a medico-legal response, increase the level of community awareness, and lobby for policy reforms that favor women and girls to improve service delivery and access to services.
We strongly believe that shifting power structures, norms, beliefs, and systems in favor of women, girls, and children’s rights is the foundation for building new synergies to allow meaningful participation of individual persons and contributes to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.
