Building on Solid Foundations
In October 2017 Sonke Gender Justice and Men Engage Africa hosted the Five Days of Gender Based Violence Prevention Meeting in South Africa. The purpose of the meeting was to share ideas, exchange promising practices, collect evidence that can strengthen collective advocacy and develop innovative ideas on “mainstreaming” violence prevention.
In preparation for the meeting, Sonke commissioned the identification and documentation of innovative practices on GBV prevention by MenEngage Africa (MEA) partners using the case study methodology. It was agreed the documentation would clearly describe and document the innovative practice, clearly demonstrate why the practices are innovative and make recommendations about how to strengthen the practice.
