The Public Association “Activist” team had a working meeting with local authorities of three villages Sumbula, Ak-Suu, and Toguz Bulak to present the goal and main objectives of the project “Supporting domestic violence prevention and reduction in Leilek rayon”. During the meeting, they discussed the current situation with domestic violence and learned about the experience of local authorities in providing legal and social support to women-victims of the domestic violence in these municipalities. As part of the project, “Activist” will work in cooperation with local authorities and other stakeholders to adopt a mechanism to prevent domestic violence and ensure social and legal support to the victims in these three municipalities.

This PA “Activist” initiative seeking to prevent and reduce domestic violence and ensure social and legal support to women-victims is supported by the USAID Collaborative Governance Program.
