Indashyikirwa

Our guide to resources on this violence prevention programme

The Indashyikirwa programme aimed to reduce intimate partner violence (IPV) and improve the wellbeing of survivors in selected communities in Rwanda. It aimed to shift attitudes, behaviours and norms that support IPV among couples and wider communities. It had four key components: intensive participatory training with couples (couples curriculum); community-based activism led by a subset of individuals that completed the couples’ curriculum and received additional training; direct support to survivors of IPV through women’s safe spaces; and training and engagement of opinion leaders.
