IJM and the Ugandan Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development are collaborating to raise public awareness of violence against women and children, with funding provided by the UN-EU Spotlight Initiative. IJM provided support with the design, content and production of the first batch of the materials.
This joint campaign is dedicated to raising awareness of violence against women and children (VAWC), especially the increases occurring due to COVID-19.
The posters and graphics are being distributed across Uganda. The messages target particular types of VAWC and are region-specific. The campaign was officially launched in the first week of June, in collaboration with numerous other NGOs.
