Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict Initiative

This event aims to showcase the protective and preventative power of education as part of the solution to ending sexual violence in conflict.

The session will feature young leaders and survivors of sexual violence outlining their solutions for preventing sexual violence in and through education, the importance of hardwiring gender equality, and building gender-responsive and resilient education systems.
