H4BF conducted focused groups discussions in Kedjom Keku, under Tubah Sub Division Mezam, in a bit to providing access to quality GBV and Sexual Reproductive Health Right services and strengthening resilience of vulnerable persons at risk of gender-based violence.
Bringing together groups of men women boys, girls, and other stakeholders including healthcare workers and community leaders, data was collected by administering questionnaires to seek responses to the communities’ attitudes and behaviors, towards aspects of GBV and Sexual and reproductive health rights.
The Anglophone crisis plaguing the North West Region of Cameroon has increased gender based violence in some communities with teenage pregnancies on the rise. H4BF therefore found the need to improve access to quality lifesaving and well-coordinated GBV and SRHR response services for individuals at risk. Through this project H4BF, is enhancing well-being among survivors/ vulnerable individuals, strengthening community resilience and systems/institutions that prevent and respond to gender based violence including harmful practices. Results from the findings will help H4BF to address and redress issues surrounding GBV and SRHR in the Big Babanki community.
These activities aligns with H4BF project Providing access to Quality GBV services and Strengthening Resilience of Vulnerable Persons at Risk of Gender-Based Violence in Mezam and Donga Mantung, North West region of Cameroon, and proudly funded by Zorg van de Zaak Foundation
