SHECHEM GLOBAL MINISTRIES is not only operating in Africa, we have managed to extend our programs in North America specifically in Canada.
Shechem Global Ministries is joining other non-profit making organization to combat Gender based violence (GBV)while violence affects people of all genders, ages, religions, cultures, ethnicities, geographic locations, and socio-economic backgrounds, populations more at risk of GBV include women, young women and girls, Indigenous Peoples, women living in Northern, rural, and remote communities, and women living with disabilities.
Women in Canada are more likely than men to experience intimate partner violence (IPV).According to the data collected in 2018 found that 44% of women reported undergo sort of intimate partner violence (IPV) in their life time (since the age of 15). In addition to that According to the Femicide Observatory, 92 women and girls were killed in the first six months of 2021, 14 more killings than over the same period last year and 32 more than in 2019.
Our role in ending gender based violence is to educate people on how they can set an example for the young generation to shape the way they think about gender, respect and human rights. We are also carrying out advocacy on behalf of survivors of GBV and carrying out various programs that will help to empower women, amplify their voices and promote gender balance.
