About

We cannot all succeed when some of us are held back!

Through the “Path to Justice” Project, REFORM worked to establish agents of change in order to prevent gender-based violence. REFORM also initiated and improved partnerships in regulatory processes among local communities.

In addition, the “Path to Justice” Project used in-depth analysis of power relations between different social groups to address current societal injustices related to gender.

The “Path to Justice” Project also facilitated women’s access to justice through establishing support networks. These networks worked collaboratively with all community members to combat cultural and structural violence and exclusionary social values, directed against women and marginalized communities.

In addition, these groups worked together to hold decision makers accountable in effectively responding to the needs of marginalized groups, especially women.
