Voices against violence Protect Bolivia's Women

We are working with young people in Bolivia, to help them change the attitudes and behaviour towards women and gender-based violence.

How you are helping

With your donations to this project, Oxfam has already begun working with individuals as well as youth groups.

Jessica Chambi, a survivor of domestic abuse herself, now promotes a life free from violence through her hip hop group.

"Before hip hop, I had no way to convey to other people that I too have rights and deserve respect. But with my group, I feel strong and safe to inspire other young people".

Another of the programme's ambassadors, Paolo Varga, having witnessed violence against women all his life, he's now working with us.

"There is an urgent need to convince young people to change their behaviour."

The programme has enabled Paolo to visit youth groups and inspire young people to speak out and challenge attitudes allowing violence to be seen as the status quo.

Thank you for your continued support.
