Haguruka, in partnership with TROCAIRE, organized a training on 21-22 December 2017 at Nyanza Heritage Hotel, with the aim of increasing the knowledge and awareness of opinion leaders on gender-based violence and available prevention and management laws and policies in Rwanda.
The training workshop was officially opened by the Vice Mayor in charge of Social Affairs in Nyanza District. All participants were asked to increase their knowledge and skills from the training by actively engaging with the training. The Vice Major also advised participants to develop the action plan on how they will implement what they learnt from the training.
The training session covered the forms that gender-based violence can take, possible causes, and consequences of gender-based violence, referrals and pathways to services, including the Isange One Stop Center. At the end of the training participants developed an action plan on how to strategically prevent gender-based violence in their district.
