Brief Description

The training of social leaders seeks to articulate and strengthen the community social network to prevent violence against women. The idea is that the social leaders trained in this program have the ability to locate and contact women who are victims of violence, and can generate the respective community strategies to help them. Know where to refer the case, go to a shelter or women's center as appropriate, know what to do in court, how to file complaints, how to better coordinate with the police and how to coordinate the entire network of help that women victims of violence need to get out of the circle of violence. All this with the aim of helping women living in violence and raising awareness in communities. This program is part of the commitments of the National Plan on Violence against Women.
