The 16 days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence is an annual United Nations international campaign that kicks off on the 25th of November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, and runs until the 10th of December, Human Rights Day. The theme for this year is: “UNITE! Activism to end violence against women and girls”.
As an international church The Salvation Army’s partnership with the United Nations remains key in raising awareness on the importance of protecting women and girls all over the world. The foundation of our work as The Salvation Army to end gender-based violence is based on our morality, conscious and faith. We represent Christ hence our faith exemplifies peace love and care – characteristics that are rooted in our work as christians. The input of women and girls in society is vital and ending gender-based violence helps ensure equality and full participation.
