|CDO Karambi giving his speech|
We believe that when the community is aware about violence against children and how it can be prevented it reduces on violence cases since some perpetrators realize that the acts they do on their children are bad and some are able to report these cases .
This is one of the
activities of the community driven mechanisms to prevent violence and adolescents
in Kasese district project as implemented by the four RWECO member organizations
of KALI, RIC-NET, GOOD HOPE and RIDE-Africa in partnership with Kasese guide radio
with support from the Child rights and violence prevention –Fund (CRVP).
