On 18th, 21st and 30th January, 2021 an
awareness programs were organized on combat human trafficking, as well
violence against women and children. We are appalled to read in the
media, almost every other day, the horrific incidents that take place
against women and children in various parts of our country. Violence
against women goes largely unpunished. This is shown by the reports
published and research conducted by the united nations, international
human rights agencies and the global women’s and feminist movements
which have been denouncing this situation for decades.
It takes many forms, from domestic abuse to rape, sexual abuse and
harmful cultural practices ranging from genital mutilation and honor
crimes to premature marriage. Keeping all this problems VCT has been
giving awareness programs in the schools, women, men and youth in the
villages of Manvi taluka. 150 children, youth women and men benefited
from this program.
