Do Not be Silent
Gender-based violence undermines the health, dignity, security and autonomy of its victims, yet it remains shrouded in a culture of silence. ASDEPO, as a local NGO working to respond to and reduce gender-based violence, supports programmes in three region and in over 18 woredas of different region.
As GBV services are severely lacking in humanitarian responses. ASDEPO and other frontline agencies provide lifesaving services to support survivors of GBV, including services through women friendly spaces, case management and referrals, psychosocial support, and staff capacity building on GBV and awareness raising on GBV/child protection to access services without fear of violence or intimidation.
