VAWIP Program commenced in January 2006 is now in its second year of implementation. At this point this program has outreach to 15 districts covering more than 75 union councils of all four provinces. Major national level activities including national level study on Violence against women in politics and national level sharing on violence against women with our partner organizations have been completed. One of the major components of the advocacy campaign initiated at grass roots and national level is in its initial phases. A total number of fifteen watch groups at district levels have been formed. The process was initiated from the identification and orientation on the issues of violence against women in politics to groups of people including social activists, political workers, councilors, NGO representatives at district levels. The Orientation sessions held with these groups helped them to understand the issue of violence against them in politics and the way in which they can build campaigns against VAW at grass roots level.VAWIP Report
