Sonke calls for peace education programmes support

We also spoke to Patrick Godana - Gender and social justice activist for Sonke Gender Justice Network to tell us more about their call to support the peace education programmes.This follows documented research that shows sexual and gender based violence (SGBV) against women and girls, and increasingly against men and boys is prevalent during armed conflicts. Therefore Sonke Gender Justice is calling upon the African Union, and regional bodies alike, to support peace education programmes that promote gender equality and challenge harmful stereotypes about men and women, in order to eradicate SGBV in conflict once and for all, and to move closer towards world peace. For further information you can contact Patrick on (021) 423 7088 or send an email to patrick@genderjustice.org.za
