5.Support to staff at all levels
Living in a patriarchal society and in a culture that justifies the secondary status of women, they are exposed to constant violence from men/women. Violence may take various forms. These may be physical, sexual, verbal, societal, etc practiced at home or outside. Violence against women is recognized as a violation of their human rights and a deterrent to development and we help our staff to the extent possible, without invading their privacy, to help them realize their right..
