Women to fight violence

Serafina Silaitoga
Wednesday, April 02, 2014

THE Vodafone Fiji Foundation will soon train women in communities in the hope of promoting the fight to end violence against women and children.

Foundation executive Ambalika Kutty said the purpose of the training was to equip selected women who would reach out to their communities in advocating for the eradication of violence against women and children.

"This will also be done through subscribing to our mWomen channels through Vodafone and women can receive advice through their cellphones," she said.

"As we know, the subscription channels are free and anyone can educate themselves on these pillars and it is to educate our community on the availability of these channels and how this aspires to bring about a difference in our communities.

"It is also to allow members of our communities to seek counselling via mobile technology which they otherwise may be difficult to access because of shame and lack of information."

Ms Kutty said the mWomen channel had reached about 38,000 people.

"Consequently, we deem that face to face interaction is important.

"This also helps us develop solutions that matter most to our communities," she said.
