The Ahi Hope Foundation and the Ahi council of women are working together to drive the message to fight gender-based violence in Lae city.
This is a lead up to the United Nations Annual 20 days of Activism program.
The main focus of the event was to end violence against women and girls around the world.
The awareness activities started last Friday with public speeches and interviews with members of the public at the market places in Lae.
Ahi Council of Women is carrying out the awareness with the support of Ahi Hope Foundation, an administrative arm of a stevedoring company in Lae.
The 20 days activist program was established by the United Nations to raise public awareness on Gender-Based Violence and to mobilize people to bring about change.
Violence against women and girls continues to be a global epidemic.
Organizations, groups and individuals taking part in this activism program believe that conducting more awareness on gender-based violence will educate others to change mindsets.
The Ahi Hope Foundation and Council of Women will continue to visit other communities in Lae to campaign against gender-based violence.
