Women’s Action Group (WAG) is a non-governmental organisation whose work centres on empowering women and girls to enjoy their rights in violence free and rights conscious communities. WAG believes that violence against women and girls is a predicament to the enjoyment of women’s economic and social rights. WAG programs focus on prevention of violence against women, promotion of sexual and reproductive health rights and prevention of HIV. Violence against women has over the years been manifesting itself in various forms in both public and domestic spaces. Violence is directly linked to gender roles and expectations.
Many women are not prepared to take up the challenge in terms of meaningful contributions in decision-making processes because they fear that they may suffer different forms of gender based violence. WAG calls on all actors against violence to join hands together and fight this social ill. All efforts have been re-dedicated to the emancipation of women and as an organisation we will continue to develop tools and products for unlocking the women’s power to claim and enjoy their rights in a violence free and rights conscious communities.
