16days Against Gender-Based Violence

No. Nedda. Hapana. Mam. Adek. Ngaaha. Lii. Taawe. No matter which language you speak, let’s say ‘NO’ together and stop gender-based violence (GBV) in Uganda. GBV crosses every social and economic class, ethnicity, race, religion, and education level, but as a network we can make change across the country.

The YALI Network’s #16days is designed to raise awareness and encourage positive action against gender-based violence in Uganda.
