UNILAK Law Students Society and RIB partners to combat GBV in secondary schools

The UNILAK Law Students Society, in collaboration with Rwanda Investigation Bureau (RIB), has
embarked on a mission to combat gender-based violence (GBV) in secondary schools
neighboring UNILAK Nyanza Campus.
The campaign, which commenced on the 7th of February, aims to empower youth to become
agents of change in their schools and communities by raising awareness, promoting prevention,
and fostering a culture of respect and equality.
The Anti-GBV Campaign, a joint initiative by the two organizations, is set to tour seven
secondary schools around the campus of Nyanza. The campaign seeks to engage students in
discussions about GBV, its impact, and ways to prevent it.
Through various activities and workshops, students will be equipped with the knowledge and
skills to recognize and address GBV in their communities.
"We believe that education is key to ending GBV," said Dr Denise Mukandoli, the coordinator of
Nyanza Campus. "By empowering young people with the right information and tools, we can
create a safer and more equitable society for all,” she added.
The campaign is set to conclude on the 20th of March within UNILAK Nyanza Campus.
Organizers hope that the initiative will not only raise awareness about GBV but also inspire
students to take action and stand up against gender-based violence in all its forms.
