abused women

This project aims at educating and raising awareness on gender equality to reduce incidences of gender based violence. Botswana subscribed to the Millennium Development Goals, which for this particular context include the Promotion of Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (Goal 3).
The programme 'Enhancing State Responsiveness to Gender-Based Violence: Paying the True Costs' aims to support state accountability for adequate and effective provision of domestic violence survivor support programmes, specifically those related to the sheltering of abused women. It also aims to strengthen and build the capacity of shelters in South Africa.
