Against Deaf women and girls...

DESK employs a multifaceted approach to reducing violence against Deaf women/ and girls. We conduct empirical research to better understand the incidence of violence, costs associated with it and factors that lead to it. We also are building evidence on interventions designed to prevent violence against deaf women, particularly comprehensive approaches that include economically empowering deaf women, involving boys and men, protecting survivors of violence and rehabilitating men who are abusive. DESK is examining the policy dimensions of violence prevention by evaluating the impact of and challenges to existing legislation and using our findings to advocate for stronger, more effective laws. DESK participates in strategic regional and global networks that work to strengthen civil society and advance the field of preventing violence against women and girls with disabilities. DESK participates in capacity building training related to SBV to gain more experience.
