GBV

January is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Awareness Month, by Presidential proclamation. As we leave January behind, it’s imperative that we continue the fight against modern day slavery.

It is easy to abhor gender-based violence. Who would not be against rape, torture, mutilation, sexual slavery, forced impregnation and murder [1] of women and men on the basis of their gender? Apparently, many people. That is, many people are not against gender violence. According to the World Health Organization [2], in 2013, 35% of women have experienced violence in their lifetime.

EnCompass designed and facilitated a 4-day gender training in Bangkok, Thailand, for approximately 20 Gender Advisors and Gender Focal Points from USAID Missions in Central, South and Southeast Asia, and the Middle East. EnCompass also provided the gender-based violence subject matter expert for the training. The purpose of the training was to equip participants with the knowledge and skills to integrate a gender perspective throughout their Missions’ program cycle and assist program managers through gender analysis of project plans.
