Andrew McConnell

Pariang, Unity State, South Sudan

A training session on Gender Based Violence (GBV) run by UNHCR partner AHA (Africa Humanitarian Action) takes place. Dinka IDP women from the surrounding area meet with AHA staff who discuss a range of issues, including; early marriage and forced marriage; the fact that rape or defilement is rarely reported; the fact that within the local culture such topics are taboo and not discussed. The training at this stage is largely about awareness creation and teaching the community that GBV/SGBV is a crime, but what staff report is that culture is the biggest challenge and the biggest contributor to the problem.
