Every year World Vision joins worldwide communities to speak out against gender-based violence (GBV) during the 16 Days Campaign. The campaign starts on November 25 (the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women) and ends on December 10 (Human Rights Day) to highlight the connection between GBV and the violation of human rights. This campaign has been used as an organizing strategy to call for the elimination of all forms of GBV by raising awareness, strengthening local work to address GBV, and providing a forum to develop and share effective strategies to eliminate such violence.
