Protection against gender, age and disability based violence: HI seeks to prevent the occurrence of gender, age and disability based violence in an effort to initiate actions that empower vulnerable persons and mobilize local, national and international stakeholders for an owned engagement in the promotion and respect of rights of vulnerable persons facing gender, age and disability based violence.
