Did you know that 1 out of 2 women in Latin America and the Caribbean will suffer at least a violence episode committed by their partners throughout their lives?
WHO ARE WE AS MEN?
HOW DO WE BEHAVE IN OUR JOURNEYS?
WHAT ARE OUR ATTITUDES?
It’s time to ask ourselves these questions and to find out that there’s more depth in “how to be a man”. There’s more freedom to live in a unique, human, and real way, in harmony with ourselves and others.
Gender-Based Violence (GBV) is any harmful act perpetrated against a person’s will and based on differences of a social nature (gender) between men and women.
Gender Violence can have different forms, among others: rape; sexual assault; physical aggression; forced marriage; denial of resources, opportunities, or services; psychological or emotional abuse.
The Regional Inter-agency Coordination Platform for Refugees and Migrants from Venezuela (R4V) was established following the request by the UN Secretary-General in April 2018. It is charged to lead and coordinate the response for refugees and migrants from Venezuela, and their host communities in Latin American and the Caribbean, and to complement responses from government authorities.
The R4V Platform brings together almost 200 organizations from across the region, who, jointly with donor entities, provide a coherent and coordinated analysis, strategic planning and response, as well as general direction, technical support, and a forum for dialogue to implement targeted activities to enhance the well-being and resilience of refugees and migrants coming from Venezuela and their host communities, taking into account their opinions, understanding their needs, and devising ways to assist them.
