first_imgThe Liberian government, through the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection and UN Women, have signed a US$6.5m agreement to prevent gender based violence in the country.The funding is also intended to strengthen the capacity of institutions helping to tackle Sexual Gender Based Violence (SGBV).Gender Minister Julia Duncan Cassell signed on behalf of the government, while the Deputy Country Representative and Officer-in-Charge of the UN Women Liberia, Peterson Magoola, signed for his organization.Minister Cassell said according to GBV statistics there is a relatively slow trend in the fight against this social menace. “From January to August 2016 a total of 931 GBV cases were reported, of which 610 were rapes, compared to January to September 2015 when a total of 1,088 GBV cases were reported nationwide of which 588 were rapes.“Also, between January and December 2014, at the peak of the Ebola epidemic, which was a regional health and developmental crisis, women and children were still violated and a total of 1,392 GBV cases were reported, of which rape accounted for 682. In 2013 a total of 2,159 GBV cases were reported and 1,215 were rapes; 2,495 were reported in 2012, with rape accounting for 1, 501; and 2,383 reported in 2011, with 1,476 rape cases,” she said.UN Women is a global advocate for gender equality working to develop and uphold standards and create an environment in which all women and girls can exercise their human rights and live up to their full potential. The agreement was sealed yesterday at the Gender Ministry during the official launch of the 16 Days of Activism against Gender, which is also known as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. The funding was provided by the Swedish Government through the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA).Mr. Magoola said the agreement would tackle four key areas with diverse executors.The prevention of gender based violence will be undertaken by UN Women and Gender Ministry, while institution-strengthening will be handled by UNDP and the Ministry of Justice; the communication component is between UNICEF and the Ministry of Information, Culture and Tourism, while coordination is again to be undertaken by UN Women and the Gender Ministry.Minister Cassell emphasized that violence against women, men, girls and boys is a violation of their human rights.She recounted that this year marks the 25th year of the 16 Days of Activism and the 15th commemoration of the 16 Days of Activism against gender violence campaign in Liberia. “I wish to call on all of you to help create a healthy and not abusive environment where everyone can enjoy peace with safe spaces,” the Minister said. “This year’s 16 Days will also focus on the launch of the End Child Marriage campaign as well as ending violence against children through the launch of the 116 Help-line for Children. “We have come again to ask our media colleagues, our guests and the listening public to help us strengthen this campaign with the communities, the churches, the mosques, the schools, the traditional leaders and stakeholders to end gender based violence and prevent another woman, another man, another girl, another boy and another child from being abused, from being raped, from being sodomized and from being deprived to live as the result of sexual gender based violence.”The Minister added that “this year’s celebration is being observed under the national theme, ‘From Peace in the Home to Peace in the World; Stop Domestic Violence, End Child Marriage while Educating All.’” The free hotline to enable children to report violence through any GSM company is 116, which has been temporarily installed at the Gender Ministry, but will be officially transferred and installed at the headquarters of the Liberia National Police.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000African giants Zamalek of Egypt got back into contention for the CAF Confederation Cup title with a 1-0 win at Petro Atletico of Angola Sunday. © AFP / Yasuyoshi CHIBAJOHANNESBURG, South Africa, Mar 3 – African giants Zamalek of Egypt clawed back into the CAF Confederation Cup title race Sunday with a 1-0 victory at Petro Atletico of Angola.Desperate for three points after a poor start in Group D, the Cairo White Knights achieved their objective thanks to Moroccan striker Hamid Ahaddad. He netted after 27 minutes at the Estadio 11 de Novembro in Luanda to lift Zamalek from the bottom of the table to second place, one point behind leaders Gor Mahia of Kenya.Gor, who have won away only once since 2009 in Africa, face NA Hussein Dey of Algeria in Algiers later Sunday.Zamalek are the joint third most successful club in CAF competitions with nine titles, including five CAF Champions League triumphs.But they have not lifted an African trophy since 2003 when they defeated Wydad Casablanca of Morocco in the CAF Super Cup match.They were rated among the favourites to win the Confederation Cup, especially after slamming seven goals past ASCOT of Chad in the first leg of a qualifier.But Zamalek struggled in the group phase, conceding four goals when losing at Gor, then only drawing at home against Hussein and Petro.Having dropped seven points in three outings, victory in Angola became paramount if the Egyptian outfit were to have a realistic chance of a top-two finish and a last-eight place.They are away again next Sunday, at Hussein, and complete a six-match schedule by hosting Gor on March 17.Zambian clubs Nkana and Zesco United fared badly in Group C, conceding three goals each in away defeats that left them third and fourth in the standings.– Crumbled –Overnight leaders Nkana trailed after only four minutes in Kumasi and crumbled 3-0 to nine-time CAF competition finalists Asante Kotoko of Ghana.Fatawu Satiu sowed the seeds of destruction with the early goal and Emmanuel Gyamfi and Martin Antwi netted within four minutes midway through the opening half.Kotoko eased the pressure after half-time, mindful that they must host new table-toppers Al Hilal of Sudan and visit Zesco by mid March.Hilal took advantage of sloppy goalkeeping by Zesco captain Jacob Banda en route to a 3-1 win in the 33 degree celsius (92 fahrenheit) heat of Omdurman.Mohamed Eldai and Waleed Hamid, with his third goal of the Confederation Cup campaign, gave the Sudanese a two-goal advantage that was halved by Lazarous Kambole before half-time.But Banda allowed a long-range shot from Hilal captain Abdellatif Saeed bounce in front of him and fly into the corner of the net on 65 minutes.Hilal have seven points, Kotoko and Nkana six each and Zesco, seeded to win the group, just four with two rounds remaining.Salitas of Burkina Faso failed to score for the fourth consecutive Group B match when held 0-0 at home by record three-time Confederation Cup winners CS Sfaxien of Tunisia.Another Tunisian challenger, Etoile Sahel, have seven points, Sfaxien six, Enugu Rangers of Nigeria four and Salitas three.0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
