What you need to know:

  • Started in 1991, the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence continues to serve as an important platform, drawing attention to prevention and response to GBV towards a safe and peaceful society for all.
  • It is time to define what we have achieved, within its context, on our interventions, challenges, lessons learnt and opportunities we can seize to build back better and stronger, especially in the face of the Covid-19.

The 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence (GBV) are here with us again. Kenya joins the rest of the world in commemorating this annual event that takes place from November 25 to December 10.
