Programs for 2017

REGAIN TRUST in partnership with the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) run a series of public dialogues on Gender Based Violence last year. Due popular demand these series were re-launched this year. This time around the program is being hosted in Katuturaand Khomasdal. The overall objectives of the program are to raise awareness and educate the Namibian people; to influence legislation and lobby for enforcement and ultimately reduce and mitigate its impact.
Below the poster exhibits the roll out program of the Gender Based Violence series
