Gender-based violence training manual

The manual is designed for volunteer peer educators (VPEs), drama interns, members of youth action clubs (YACs), teenage mother’s clubs and community stakeholders and for the implementation of SRH lessons and drama outreach through a gender lens. It is a tool to help the various stakeholders strengthen their capacity in understanding of GBV and to support activities to increase awareness, prevention and adequate response and redress to violations.
A key constraint of the manual is limited time. However, to compensate for this and allow for various stakeholders to be trained on the topics most relevant for them, each session can be used individually or as a part of a longer process. The activities are highly participatory to give participants time to think, reflect and discuss the concepts, which will facilitate retention and change.
Most of the sessions are developed for a non/semi-literate audience to ensure as many people as possible are able to participate actively.
