We Are With Her

Violence can impact women physically, psychologically and economically, and has serious implications on their health, their families, and communities. Responding to this violence requires a range of interlinked actions.

The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) together with the Government of Canada in partnership with the Ministry of Women and Child Development, Pre-schools and Primary Education, School Infrastructure and Education Service is working towards improving services and support for survivors of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV).

Every individual featured in this publication passionately contributed to improving services for SGBV survivors in Sri Lanka, both at National and Sub-National levels in the Mannar and Hambantota districts through the project titled ‘We Are With Her’. This is a two and a half year project aimed at positioning public sector officials as advocates working to address violence against women and girls.
