KOROVISILOU Village in Serua has become the recent member of the Zero Tolerance Violence Free Community Campaign, which looks into safeguarding the rights of women and children in the community.

With a population of about 500, the village has joined the campaign in becoming a violence-free village along with 67 communities that have already enlisted.

Minister for Women Dr Jiko Luveni said through increased awareness, the communities would be in a better position to make informed decisions.

"The advice is for the newly-married young couples to spend quality time with each other before starting a family," Dr Luveni said.

"Problems like family disputes and divorce results when young couples are not well prepared in terms of having a family, thus faced with challenges like financial problems."

Korovisilou Women's Group president Anareta Ru said the launch of the campaign had given a fresh start to village women.

"There are some women who are suffering in silence due to fear, however, the culture of silence will be broken," Mrs Ru said.
