Prevention Corner

The primary prevention of domestic violence aims to create social change. We are working to cultivate individuals and communities that do not tolerate violence and support healthy relationships and gender equality.

To achieve this peaceful vision for the future, we must shift deeply ingrained attitudes, beliefs and behaviors that contribute to domestic violence. You can help! Together we can prevent dating and domestic violence. Know More.
