Who Actually Can Joint the Race for the Fight Against Gender Based Violence (GBV)?

Every survivor of GBV needs help, and not blames. Whatever the sort of violence, it is never the victim’s fault. Above all, GBV is a human right violation. As such, cases of GBV need to be treated as a matter of urgency to save the survivor from the precarious outcomes. The question is, who can be of help?
Either consciously or unconsciously, we do this or that which serves as a preventive measure or a response measure to GBV. We need therefore to put our efforts together (form networks of service providers) and save more souls.
The family, friends, the traditional and religious leaders, groups, schools, the medical sector, the for legal institutions, forces of law and order or security, financial institutions, counsellors, and the list is long.
How do we do it? you can render advice, you can refer cases to competent service providers, you can sensitize, you can accompany a survivor to seek justice, you can empower the survivor economically, you can build the self esteem of the survivor and many others.
It is in this light that LUKMEF on the 20th and 21st organized the first ever National Civil Society Organizations (CSO) forum in Buea, in a bid to build a National CSO Coordination mechanism on ending GBV.

  1. Everyone deserves a better life and GBV is a big problem in the society. All of us have been affected in one way or another, and as a result it our collective duty to fight GBV. If you see or know something you have to say something. We need that one voice to draw the crowd and together we shall end GBV.

  2. The fight against GBV has been and will always be our duty.
    surely we can get rid of it, if we all put heads and efforts together.

    let’s in every circumstance say “” NO TO. GBV .””

  3. One of the aggravating factors of GBV is societal norms which (in our context) prescribe that women remain in relationships regardless of how abusive it becomes. Many women are trapped in a vicious cycle of violence because of this norm. To curb this, women should be free to speak out and to obtain justice and social support if they are violated. All options should be considered including legal action against the perpetrator and even divorce initiated by the woman who finds herself in an abusive relationship. Without prejudice, our society must welcome divorce especially when it comes to abuse and we must discard the archaic rhetoric that “husband and wife should solve their problems in the bedroom” GBV cannot be solved in the bedroom

  4. GBV violence is a crime. Unfortunately in our society, Cameroon as a case isn’t yet seen as such. Why do I say so ?
    Most who inflict violence get away without punishment.
    I will be brief. We need to make laws that directly purnishes violators. We need to sensitize our communities on this. The society need to be empowered to take immediate action when the witnesses cases of GBV within their communities.

    If each and everyone takes it personal it might be the right step toward the right direction.

  5. Thank you very much for bringing up this wonderful initiative to reduce the rate of GBV! Most of us has passed through this act in one way or the other! In this 21st century some people particularly girls are still unaware of their right concerning GBV. I strongly support this movement.
