ASSOCIATION OF WOMEN EMPOWERMENT CAMEROON AWEC. Hitting it hard on door-to-door and person-to-person GBV on community

Gender-based violence programming (i.e. prevention and response) and risk mitigation across all sectors is lifesaving and an institutional priority for us. We work together with partners, Reach out Cameroon and communities to address GBV and to implement quality programming to prevent, mitigate and respond.

Our primary purpose is to safeguard the rights and well-being of refugees and other people who were forced to flee. We support Community to uphold their responsibility to ensure that people of concern are protected against GBV.

Across all our camping, seminar, training, we prioritize two mutually reinforcing objectives to address GBV:

  1. reducing the risk of GBV for all persons of concern;
  2. ensuring all survivors of GBV have adequate and timely access to quality services that meet their needs.
