Nyaka, a local NGO, has held their annual walk aimed at raising awareness against sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) and also promoting community involvement in the prevention and reporting of SGBV.

This year the walk begun with the opening of Nyaka’s 5th Healing Center in Kebisoni Health Center IV in Rukungiri district. Thereafter, participants, led by the Chief Walker, Ms Mary Borgman, the PEPFAR Country Coordinator, embarked on a symbolic walk through Rukungiri town to demonstrate their dedication to raising awareness about SGBV.

This was followed by a gathering at Rukungiri Stadium, where the community was addressed by community leaders and experts, with presentations and performances from students, mothers, and musicians including Ykee Benda, Zamani and MC Kachaina.

“We have supported over 600 survivors, facilitated the conviction of over 60 perpetrators and have carried out training and awareness-raising activities in partnership with the community as a whole.” Said an administrator at the organization.  “With the opening of a healing center at Kebisoni Health Center IV, we will now provide SGBV survivors with appropriate first-line medical and psychosocial support services.”
