We have supported gender reconciliation projects held in London, the United Kingdom.
Before starting our new awareness programs, we have successfully led projects in Ecuador, Limones, helping women with their struggle on domestic violence and bringing awareness of this topic in the community. More than a hundred women have been helped by Victory for Equality to create a better and safer life for themselves and their children.
This project is now carefully taken over by a governmental organisation.
Our former project is based in the Mwanza region of Tanzania, on the shores of Lake Victoria.
Over the last few decades, gender based violence has gained international recognition as a grave social and human rights concern. In Tanzania, gender based violence is widespread; the most recent Tanzania Demographic and Health Survey found that 44% of ever-married women have experienced physical and/or sexual violence from an intimate partner in their lifetime.
The Gender Reconciliation projects we we did support are projects that work on the root causes rather than on the symptoms of gender inequality.
The premise of the Gender Reconciliation work, is that it builds on the gender reconciliation process, initiated in South Africa, after apartheid. Based upon the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in Post- Apartheid South Africa. So the Gender Reconciliation work, applies the same principals of truth telling and reconciliation, to the gender divide within humanity.
