Training session on Domestic Violence and the protection from the International and National law at MWLW-ACT

During the 16 days Campaign Against Gender Based Violence, MWLW ACT Centre organized a training session on domestic violence and the protection from International and National law.

7 women/clients of MWLW ACT participated in this training session.In the first part, women were well- informed on the definition and forms of domestic violence: psychological, physical, sexual and economic. One of the most important parts of the training was informing the women on International and National Law and the recent changes in the law. These included those laws relating to the need, when necessary,  to get protection with a protection order from the police and court and providing relevant services from public institutions and Ngo’s.

The participation and discussion was very important and made the training more active. In the last part of the training, the trainer and women wrote some messages on Prevention of Domestic Violence.
