This week, the Protection and Communications team concluded
a series of workshops on sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) with a special event. 25 participants, aged 15-25 came together and through teamwork, research and
reflection, explored and presented outlooks on love, prostitution, risky sexual behavior, transactional
sex among youth and adolescents and violence within a relationship.
"They all did great work, it was clear that the workshops had prompted them to reconsider perceptions and ideas around these concepts," said Project Manager, Marie-Clementine Cremer. "These are sensitive issues that deserve reflection and that is certain to have a resounding impact in their daily lives."
