women are usually the immediate victims of gender violence, the consequences of gender violence extend beyond the victim to the society as a whole. In order to protect themselves and obtain better access to essential services, women in general and survivors of GBV need information about their rights and how to assert these rights through the appropriate legal channels, therefore YAWI  finds it necessary to train Women survivors of GBV in informal settlements  as paralegals to end the vice.

This is brilliant. No one knows better than women who have personally survived violence what is needed in the legal system. Imagine the difference this will make to women these paralegals will make to those seeking their help in the future! Best wishes for success for YAWI in the current fundraising campaign. What a great photo of these women involved and making action happen.
