WOMANKIND WE THANK YOU FOR THE VISIT

The 16 Days of Activism is a no Violence against Women and Children Campaign which takes place annually from 25 November (International Day of No Violence against Women) to 10 December (International Human Rights Day).

Womankind Worldwide has been at the forefront striving to end violence against women and girls, advancing women’s economic rights, strengthening women’s participation and leadership

Polycom girls were privileged to host the Director of Policy and Communication Dinah Musindarwezo of Womankind Worldwide during the 16 days of Activism. On the second day of the Activism, Polycom girls were taken through a self defence session where they were taught how to defend themselves against perpetrators.

Young women experience sexual abuse and harassment daily, unfortunately, part of their daily routine. As a result, women are constantly on guard, fearing everything from the routine groping they suffer on public buses, to far more violent assaults like marital rape and domestic violence. This has not only eroded their self-confidence but also added to a layer of constant fear forcing them to structure their entire lives around protecting themselves and their children.”

Gender Based violence has serious, immediate and long term consequences on the sexual, physical and psychological health of survivors.As an Organization stemming the vice is our major concern especially those metted towards adolescent girls.

We appreciate the work Womankind Worldwide has enabled Polycom project achieve. We are much obliged to the Organization and their willingness to see women and girls are empowered to step up and stand up to their rights.
