Voices against Violence Togo workshop prepares trainers to speak out and advocate against gender-based violence

The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS), in partnership with UN Women and with the support of Zonta International, is working to prevent and reduce gender discrimination and violence against women and girls through non-formal education and youth leadership engagement.

At the fourth regional Voices Against Violence training in Lomé, Togo, in January, 47 participants were trained from nine French-speaking countries. Each of the trainers, in turn, is expected to run national workshops that will instruct at least 30 additional leaders to deliver the Voices against Violence curriculum to young people in their home countries.
