Violence against women is a widespread problem throughout Guinea-Bissau and throughout the world and Mani Tese, present in Guinea-Bissau since 1979, has been active for several years to promote and guarantee the rights of girls and women victims of violence and exploitation.

Thanks to the “Integration of asylum seekers and Senegalese refugees” project, co-financed by UNHCR, protection committees have been created in the 34 villages where Mani Tese operates to inform the population about women’s rights and assist victims of gender-based violence.

A change of mentality and greater awareness of the problem is important and necessary, for this reason five people have been trained in each community with the task of mediating in cases of violence to report, raise awareness and prevent violence itself.

Watch the reportage and listen to the testimonies of the women victims of violence that Mani Tese supports.
