About Safe Speaks..
Gender based violence, which globally affects 1 out of 3 girls or women, continues to cause havoc in relationships, families, and community.
It affects large segments of society and is often whispered in hushed tones because, to a large extent, it affects persons known to one another.
Therefore, this blog sets to demystify these unsavory practices and avail a proactive and collaborative forum for gender based violence (gbv) awareness, information sharing on support services, empowerment, in addition to espousing restorative health and healing services to attain full potential for the victims.
If women and girls don’t fully enjoy their human rights and are free from any violence, progress toward development will fall short.
We encourage responsible behavior, accountability, respect for human rights, the right of expression and concern for the escalating scourge that threatens to engulf humanity.
This blog, choreographed as a research powerhouse, is intent on building an information repository, a communication handle, a reliable and impeccable source of knowledge on not only gbv but also other related issues whose impact on society goes beyond the written word.
GBV may not end overnight. But if we keep challenging unacceptable attitudes, practices, and abusive behavior, we might completely rid society of this vice.
Let us join hands!
