The Great Lake Region of Africa – Fight Against Gender Based Violence.

Women Don’t Cry, business is my tool and when you empower a human-being economically he has strength, he has the power, he will walk with his aid “I”.

For decades women suffered and still in some cultures the only solution for a girl to survive is to get married as early as possible. Over the past two decades, the Great Lakes Region of Africa — notably Burundi, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, and Uganda — has endured civil wars, ethnic conflict and even genocide. Women and girls have been specifically targeted through the systemic use of gender-based violence (GBV) during times of war and in post-conflict situations. In 2009, CARE–one of the largest relief and development agencies in the world—launched the Great Lakes Advocacy Initiative or GLAI.

GLAI seeks to protect the rights of women and girls through regional and global networks that advocate against gender based violence and for the implementation of relevant UN resolutions. This documentary is a testimony to the successes achieved and the challenges encountered since GLAI was launched. Each GLAI country has its own unique story to share.
