16 Days of Activism Against Gender Based Violence Campaign
The 16 Days of Activism against Gender Based Violence is an international campaign originating from the first Women's Global Leadership Institute coordinated by the Center for Women's Global Leadership in 1991. Participants chose the dates between November 25- International Day against Violence on Women- and December 10- International Human Rights Day- in order to symbolically link violence against women and human rights and to emphasize that such violence is a violation of human rights.
TAWLA among other human right organizations is participating in the 24th year of the 16 Days of Activism against Gender Based Violence campaign from 25th November – 10th December, 2015 through radio and TV Programs focusing on raising awareness and provide free legal aid.
The global theme for this year is “From Peace in the Home to Peace in the World, Make Education safe for all” and the theme at the national level is “Funguka! Chukua Hatua, Mlinde mototo apate elimu.” The theme recognizes the dire situation for millions of girls, boys, young women and men: whose universal human right to education is daily impacted or cut short due to violence, lack of resources, and discrimination.
