FIFTEEN households in the village of Nabouono in Udu district have begun working with the Ministry of Women to nurture a violence-free community.

Speaking to the villagers during a recent trip, permanent secretary Dr Josefa Koroivueta said the ministry was grateful to Nabouono's male leaders for leading the campaign.

Dr Koroivueta said communities that look after their women and children would prosper and cultivate greater understanding and communication between families.

Following the launching of the Zero Tolerance Violence Free Community Campaign last year, Women's Minister Dr Jiko Luveni said the village had successfully completed 10 phases of the campaign to qualify for the declaration stage.
