No Means No Male Instructors (30) and No Means No Female Instructors (30)

Website EXPANDED CHURCH RESPONSE

Not for Profit Organisation

 Expanded Church Response (ECR) is a faith-based organization implementing Orphans and Vulnerable Children, Gender-Based Violence and HIV/AIDS programs amongst others to mitigate human suffering and bring transformational development.

ECR has implemented programs funded by USAID, CDC, European Union, UNICEF, and Global Fund either directly or through a range of highly regarded local and international organizations. Working with partners like these, the private sector, and government, we are seeing communities awakened to new ways of improving the quality of life for the most vulnerable, and rise up to be the key to their own transformation.

ECR is collaborating with No Means No Worldwide to implement the No Means No program, an evidence based child safety and violence prevention/ dual-gender program that teaches girls to set boundaries, stand up and defend themselves and boys to challenge rape culture, ask for consent and intervene in attacks. Research has shown a 47% decrease in the incidence of sexual assaults among girls taught No Means No, which has led to endorsements from the World Health Organization, the CDC, UNICEF and the Global Partnership to End Violence Against Children.
