ALOWA organizes training Sessions titled ‘One Man Can end Domestic violence’. When women are coming to attend meetings and other ALOWA activities, they are required to come with their husbands. Thus ALOWA uses this opportunity to engage men to prevent violence. Thus ALOWA uses its activities to engage men in violence prevention. ALOWA combines HIV Prevention and gender roles to empower women and reduce overall vulnerability to domestic violence. The curriculum that is used is the ‘One man Can…’ toolkit. It is a set of activities and training materials that focus on enrolling men as champions for gender equality. One man Can stop rape, One Man Can end violence, One Man Can accept ‘NO!’ are all typical slogans and topics that are covered in the trainings. As most violence in the world is perpetrated by men against women, it makes sense to talk to men about reducing violence. Training sessions equip men to be able to become agents for change in this environment, showing their peers how they wisely use skills to reduce their levels of vulnerability to violence and HIV infection.
Under Violence prevention and safety programme, ALOWA will provide Psychosocial support given to victims of gender based violence, early pregnancies, stigmatized women and young girls living with HIV/AIDs through guidance and counselling services. This is to build their self-esteem back and advocate for their rights too.
