GBV in conflict settings
During the recent 22nd commemoration of the Rwanda genocide, MenEngage Africa held a workshop on the role of faith-based leaders in conflict and post-conflict settings. The theme focused on addressing sexual and gender-based violence during and post conflict, and the aim was to sensitise MenEngage Africa partners and faith leaders to be advocates in preventing and responding to sexual and gender-based violence in conflict settings. The meeting was held in the Rwandan capital, Kigali, from 18 – 22 April 2016, and was attended by MenEngage Africa alliance partners and faith leaders based in the Great Lakes region, which is currently characterised by conflict. MenEngage Africa’s Communications Officer, Khopotso Bodibe, spoke to some of the participants and produced this vox-pops feature.
