The only way to completely eradicate Gender Based Violence in Rwandan society is to denounce perpetrators to be punished for all people to learn the consequences of their actions. This was said by Josiane Nyiramongi who works for Haguruka Association in Gakenke district.
This was during the opening session of the training on Gender Based Violence that will be concluded on Friday the 27th September 2013.
This training is meant to inform the Gender Based Violence committees in the district about GBV and their role in cubing it down. This is so especially since Gakenke district is one of the districts in the country with high levels of GBV cases.
