Lessons Learned About Volunteerism Within The Context Of Primary Prevention Of Violence Against Women And Girls
Evidence and experiences from P4P supported programmes in the Asia and the Pacific contributed towards increased understanding and strengthening of volunteerism within the context of primary prevention of violence against women and girls and promoting safe and vibrant relationships, homes and communities. Partnering with the United Nations Volunteers programme meant incorporating goals to mobilize volunteers and promote volunteerism to support VAWG primary prevention interventions in the P4P programme. In this report, P4P shares some key lessons learned.
Volunteerism activities were implemented within interventions for four main reasons:
• To sustain and expand the results and lessons learned from the intervention
• To raise awareness of VAWG prevention
• To promote a sense of ownership of transformation and VAWG prevention among participants
• To empower and inspire community members to take action in building safe, equitable and
happy families and communities.
