“The participants were sensitised on SGBV, the effect and preventive measures.

“They were sensitised to how to support victims and survivors of SGBV to speak up and dismiss fear of stigmatisation for justice,” he explained.

Moriki called for cohesion among various institutions and individuals working in the human rights space towards eradicating gender-based violence, especially at the community level.
