The 16 Days Grant

Violence against women in Africa is endemic. African women and girls are subjected to many forms of violence, including rape, female genital mutilation (FGM), sexual assault, human trafficking and widowhood rites. Violence against women occurs in all aspects of women’s lives and encompasses abuse of women’s civil, cultural, economic, social and political rights.The AWDF’s 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence Grant supports campaigns for the International Day of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence, recognized on November 25.
