Fight against sexual and gender-based violence through healing the victims from trauma and promoting women’s and youth entrepreneurship in Burundian refugee camps located in Uganda:
52 refugees have been interviewed since the beginning of the project and attended the 2 workshops in Nakivale refugee camp.
Through reports on RPA and the Nakivale workshop, refugees have been sensitized on many kinds of sexual and gender-based violence and why it is important to fight against them. Refugees are also aware of the importance of starting a business.
After the September Nakivale workshop, one attendee said, during an interview, she learnt that she doesn’t need a big capital to start a business. The strategies to run the business are crucial, she added.
Some attendees also said they have learnt a lot about good management policies, creativity and how to hunt for new entrepreneurship opportunities in the refugee camp and its surroundings.
After the workshop, a man said it is important to organize such workshop for refugees because some men don’t know what really sexual and gender-based violence are.
