Launch of New Training Program to End Violence Against Women in Draa Valley, Southwest Morocco

 

On May 10, 2014 the Agdz, Morocco-based Association El Wifak launches a new training program on gender-based violence (GBV), using new adaptations of WLP's film, From Fear to Freedom: Ending Violence Against Women, and manual Victories Over Violence: Ensuring Safety for Women and Girls - A Practitioner's Manual. This program resulted from an initiative launched by Association El Wifak, following a WLP Training of Trainers Institute (TOT) for organization members and other activists implemented by WLP facilitators from WLP Morocco/Association Démocratique des Femmes du Maroc (ADFM). After a screening of From Fear to Freedom at the TOT, Association El Wifak was inspired to create dubbed editions in the local languages to raise awareness of GBV to individuals across the region regardless of literacy ability.*
