After a colourful national launch of the 16 Days of Activism against Gender Based Violence (GBV) on 25 November, 2020, Ntcheu and Balaka have taken another step by holding district-based activities to mark the beginning of campaign.
YONECO through its offices in the two districts also participated in the activities which marked the launch of the 2020 16 Days of Activism against GBV campaign. In both districts, the launch event commenced with solidarity marches then guests of honour toured pavilions of various institutions which showcased their interventions in preventing and responding to GBV cases.
The events were also spiced up by music performances, poems and plays which all had thematic messages.
The global theme for this year’s 16 Days of Activism against GBV is: “Orange the World: Fund, Respond, Prevent, Collect!”
