Gender-Based Violence is a global pandemic. The question we must ask ourselves, is not ‘if ’ or even ‘why’, but rather, ‘how’ do we best work collectively, young and older persons in Africa and across the world, to end this vice. This is the challenge we carry with us as we 'attack' GBV, as a driver of child poverty and its effects on children and youth.

As Arigatou International, we have  learnt that by engaging youth and children as co-partners in our work  — that is by working , not only for, but with young members of our communities — we are strategically positioning ourselves to achieve social, political and economic transformation; faster, more effectively and with resounding effectiveness and lasting impact.
