16 days of activism
I have a dream
I have a dream! Martin Luther King inspires many people, as well as the young women and man we work with. How to make your dreams a reality? We empower youth to dream big, influence decision makers and people around them in their household and communities to reduce the obstacles to get an enabling environment. An environment with a save space to express themselves, with gender equality and with decent jobs and income. Every day, in many parts of the world, women and girls face discrimination, inequality, violence, abuse and are denied opportunities to learn, earn and lead.
Gender-based violence at the workplace, public spaces and at home, keep young women from achieving their dreams. In this regard, 16 days-of-activism against gender-based violence is key time for us to raise awareness and invite people to stand-up and raise their voices for an end to violence against women and girls. 16 Days is an international campaign which runs every year from 25th November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to 10th December, the Human Rights Day.
