Yesterday on International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, the EU officially launched its project ‘‘Strengthening GBV prevention and inclusive response services in Sierra Leone’’.

Through this 600.000 € project, EU is partnering with Rainbow, Handicap International and Care to tackle gender based violence from different angles, with a focus on prevention, on providing support services to victims of gender based violence - including to persons with disabilities - and on strengthening the capacity of all actors involved locally.  

 

In a video released for the occasion of the launch, EU Ambassador Tom Vens stated that we all have to play a serious role and dramatically step up our efforts to tackle gender based violence and rape, in Sierra Leone and worldwide.
