GENDER BASED VIOLENCE SEMINAR

June 5, 2018

INTRODUCTIONS

Domestic violence has become a very common vice in Meru at large.
In Kenya domestic violence has increased to 38%. The violence is both physical and emotional for both men and women. We have had women killed or have their body parts mutilated by their partners. CIFORD Kenya works with rural women who are suffering silently from domestic violence, these women are therefore prone to psychological torture, emotional and physical which a time leads to death. As CIFORD, we have taken it as our concern to sensitize women on how best to reduce domestic violence.
CIFORD Kenya found the importance to organize a seminar on domestic violence its causes, effects, and solutions. They were encouraged to sustain their families violence is not the solution to family problems.
