International Day For The Elimination Of Violence Against Women

International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women raises awareness and encourages people across the world to bring about change. Violence against women impedes development in many areas and delays the progress of poverty eradication and security prevention (UNFPA). Violence against women and girls can also lead to high economic costs. Beyond the high medical and judicial costs, violence can impact households through lost income and productivity. Globally, 1 to 3 women will experience gender based violence in her lifetime (UN).

Drop4Drop believes the promotion of gender equality is a necessary foundation for peace and sustainability. Providing women and girls equal access to education, health care, political representation and the opportunity to live free from violence can benefit societies and humanity. Millions of women are denied fundamental human rights simply because of their gender. We at Drop4Drop encourage women’s participation in all our projects in order to empower them as individuals and increase gender equality. The development of clean water wells throughout India and Uganda has raised women’s economic opportunities since they do not have to walk miles everyday to reach water sources and are now able to work. More income and financial independence can raise life standards and provide better education to children. We believe that women’s empowerment is the core of development and can strengthen gender equality, enhance economic growth and lead to a more secure and prosperous world.

Various activities are arranged every year around the world to celebrate this day including projects that help women escape violence, programs that inform people about the impacts of women’s abuse and fund raising activities. From the 25th of November to the 10th of December, which is Human Rights Day, activists, advocates, policymakers and many other supporters around the globe call for action to increase gender equality.
