International Day for Elimination of Violence against Women - 25/11/14

 

The Samdrup Jonkghar RENEW-CBSS/MSTF volunteers have conducted a cleaning campaign on 25th November, 2014, especially focusing on non degradable items along with the advocacy/awareness on DV/GBV/VAW/DAISAN (Druk Adolescent Initiative on Sexual Awareness network) and MSTF/AIDS/HIV. This was to mark the 60th Birth Anniversary of our beloved 4th King and International Day for Elimination of Violence Against Women.

Her Royal Highness, Geyum Azhi Sangay Wangmo Wangchuck, the patron of RENEW has chosen the theme for this year 2014, "Responding to end violence against women" which is timely and apt as per the present social trends.

The CBSS/MSTF Volunteers took off the campaign from the border gate at 7:30 am and ended at Pinchinang Checkpost (4km). The cleaning campaign was lead by Aum Gyem Lham and RENEW active volunteer's members. The group was also joined by the Desuup community in Samdrup Jongkhar.
