The training programmes will introduce and discuss the issues, reasons, consequences of the inequalities and atrocities faced by women, and viable options to prevent these social and gender issues with the community participation. The trainings and awareness programmes will reach to a wider level audience including the affected women, youth, government officials and women leaders.
