The 16 days of activism is an international campaign that is commemorated every year in fighting violence against women and the working group members dove headlong in commemorating this day last year. Other NGOs, CBOs are usually mobilized by us to participate in the activities; working group synchronizes concurrent programs on behavior change through the use of film and art besides mobilizing for the event through the use of megaphones and flyers.  Medical, legal and referral services are offered to both survivors and those who want to know more about fighting GBV.
