This programme seeks to strengthen the capacity of ADSOCK members and the public and to empower them with knowledge and skills to effectively address issues of sexual and gender based violence and the violation of their human rights, to share experiences and use the lessons learnt to reach others.

This is done by sharing of information through interpersonal encounters, publications of Behaviour Change and Communication (BCC) materials, training sessions, strategic and inter-gender and integenerational dialogues and sharing of experiences and strategies from diverse communities. Through this programme ADSOCK also engages in networking and alliance building.
