Awareness Raising Campaign about Domestic Violence in Eastern Abkhazia

Organization: Avangard

Location: Gal/i region

Years: 2014-2015

Women’s rights NGO Avangard will carry out an awareness raising campaign about domestic violence and gender equality. The campaign will be focused on Gal/i region (especially small settlements where proper information is least accessible) and topics related to domestic violence, violence on women, prevention of conflicts, possibilities of solution in cases of domestic violence etc.

There will be a new set of printed materials issued and distributed (using Czech/European experience with fighting against domestic violence), a travelling photo exhibition and other publicity. Two surveys on public opinion and level of awareness will be carried out.

Last year the initiative participated in the international campaign “16 Days of Activism against Violence against Women”.
