Gender Violence

Gender Violence

Gender violence includes, but is not limited to, rape, sexual assault and relationship violence.

The term ‘gender violence’ reflects the idea that violence often serves to maintain structural gender inequalities, and includes all types of violence against women, men and children. This type of violence in some way influences or is influenced by gender relations. To adequately address this violence, we have to address cultural issues as one of the main causes that often encourage violence as part of masculinity.

By providing financial and other support to beneficiaries who have the focus and expertise in on the field ground, the Acorn Foundation is sure to change the lives of those in need.
