Creating Safer Communities: Learning from Projects to Prevent Gender Based Violence in Guatemala and Honduras

27 November 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

We invite you to join us in an upcoming on-line event which unites two leading organizations in innovation and transformation in gender equity, violence prevention, and sustainable development.

This engaging online workshop will weave together the key learnings from two highly impactful gender-based violence prevention programs funded by the Fund for Innovation and Transformation:

  • Sombrilla’s Equal Access to Justice for Women in Honduras Project (EJWH)
  • SERniña ‘Whole Family Healing Program’ in Guatemala

During this workshop, speakers from both organizations will share insights, learnings, successes, and failures from their projects with the goal of enabling other organizations and industry professionals to better address gender-based violence and gender inequity in their communities. This engagement-focused workshop will include opportunity for group discussion and Q&A.

Why You Should Attend: Our workshop serves a dual purpose.

  1. Knowledge Sharing: We will present insights from our projects, offering practical strategies to fight gender-based violence. By attending, you will gain access to valuable insights and
    practical strategies that can make a difference in communities here and around the world.
  2. Promoting Safer Communities: Discuss how the knowledge gained from our projects can contribute to safer communities for women. We will explore our findings, drawing lessons from
    our experiences in Guatemala and Honduras.

Why It Matters
Geography doesn’t limit our efforts. We will show that lessons from one community can be of benefit in others. By sharing our knowledge, we can all work more effectively. Your participation bridges regions, fosters collaboration, and sparks change in the fight against gender-based violence.

This event offers learning, networking, innovation, and collective action. The connections and knowledge shared will propel our mission to end gender-based violence.
