Young Boys Dialogue on Gender Based Violence (GBV). A Skills Development Centre that is equipped with a training facility was officially opened. This will assist women to learn how to create and develop goods and products in order to create sustainable employment for themselves and promote small business development within their municipal area. This seeks to alleviate poverty and also to bridge the inequality gap that women and young girls are facing.
