Today marks the beginning of the significant 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence. This year, we rally under the powerful themes: ”UNITE! Invest to Prevent Violence against Women & Girls.”

At WLA, we have witnessed firsthand the impact of strategic investments in combating gender-based violence. This period of activism is not just a call to raise awareness but a crucial reminder of the need for concrete actions and sustainable investments.

Why Invest?
Investment is about allocating resources – money, time, and effort – towards initiatives for creating safer and more equitable societies where every woman and girl can live free from fear and discrimination.

This is a call to action for each of us. Whether you are an individual, a leader, or a policy-maker, your role is pivotal.

As we step into these 16 days, let’s commit to not just speak but act. Let’s unite to create lasting change.
