On Friday 24 November 2017, Rwanda joined the rest of the world launching the ‘16 Days of Activism’, a campaign aimed to mobilize action towards ending violence against women and girls across the globe.

Echoing the call to “Leave No One Behind” for the elimination of gender-based violence, in Rwanda, the campaign was launched in Kigali, with a walk from Parliamentary Buildings in Kimihurura to Amahoro Mini Stadium.

The walk brought together senior government officials, development partners, civil society organisations, members of the private sector, army and police top brass, secondary and university students, and groups of women rights activists.

Themed “End Violence against Women and Girls: Speak Out!” the campaign runs from 25 November to 10 December this year.

Different people participated in a walk from Parliamentary Buildings in Kimihurura to Amahoro Mini Stadium.
