Gender Based Violence Programming (GBV)

Gender Based Violence (GBV) is one of the community service activities offered by AMBSO in the Host District.  (Wakiso District). The program directly contributes to The National Policy on Elimination of Gender-Based Violence in Uganda (2016), and international commitments which support efforts to address GBV.

The program commenced in  March, 2018 with a goal  to create awareness and establish community- led action against GBV and HIV/AIDS.

The program adopted use of the SASA! Methodology geared at uniting efforts across community systems. The community stakeholders including  Community leaders, Police officers, Religious leaders were oriented to support the field activities. Community activists (CAs) were identified as key players and trained on the SASA! methodology. They were enflamed to reflect on their behaviors and attitudes towards GBV and equipped with  skills to respond to cases of violence. Monthly series of capacity strengthening sessions are held with the CAs to strengthen  community engagement for awareness and fight against GBV and HIV/AIDs
