CAV (COMMUNITY AGAINST VIOLENCE)

CAV (COMMUNITY AGAINST VIOLENC

Violence against women and children in homes is still a serious problem in Uganda. Women and children are buttered and beaten at will by husbands and fathers. What is disheartening is that the society looks on as if it is the most natural thing to do. Some times traditionally women themselves seem to expect a beating once in a while. There is a serious need for campaign to promote human rights and good governance, advocate for education for all especially the girl child and to research and advocate for the prevention of gender based and domestic violence against women and children.

The project has trained rights Awareness promoters (RAPs) for sensitizing the community and build awareness on human rights issues. The community should be educated that protecting and supporting abused women or children is their responsibility. The project works with community leaders to build consensus on how this can be achieved. Corporal punishment has been abolished in schools but sometimes news about child -beating leak through and the perpetrators seem to go unpunished.

To advocate against corruption and injustice as the important tool to prevent injustices on the grounds of gender. The project works with law enforcement government departments, NGOs, CBOs, to bring to book the violence perpetrators. But a lot more has to be done. While there are laws which protect women and children, the practice is different in many areas.
