The training which held over the weekend brought together CSOs and government stakeholders involved in PSEA.

The project dubbed Enhancing Communities Communication on Protection against Sexual Exploitation and Abuse was organized by SOPISDEW, a local NGO, with CCMN as technical partner. It shall in the next couple of weeks produce and disseminate media content to curb sexual violence in NWSW communities.
