On February 15, 2019, the Public Union “Women Support Center” and representatives of three Bishkek settlements shared the results of the project “The Committee for the Prevention of Domestic Violence (CPDV) as an Effective Tool for the Prevention of Domestic Violence” at press briefing in AKIpress Press Center. As part of the project, implemented with the support of the USAID Collaborative Governance Program, 211 residents of three Bishkek settlements (Kalys Ordo, Kolmo and Ak Bosogo), including both men and women, attended 12 workshops and learned about existing domestic violence legislation and how to respond to cases of domestic violence and improve relationships between family members.
The project provided support to the CPDVs of the three settlements to strengthen their capacity and implement initiatives for the elimination of domestic violence in their communities.
