Stage being used to help educate children about gender-based violence – 29th Jan 2013

shot0015Schools are now being targeted in an effort to raise the awareness of gender-based violence and some young people are eager to play their part.

The Ministry of Human Services has teamed up with non-governmental organization MERUNDOI and they are using drama to get the message across.

Darwin Humphrey, project and operations manager of MERUNDOI, said, the aim is to bring about behavioral changes.
