Although concept of gender is quite new for the council of Tsiafahy. After careful observation of the benefits of mainstreaming gender in the policies of the council, the members of the counsellors, the staff of the commune led by the mayor have voted unanimously for the imperative necessity of an action plan that takes into account Gender and GBV. The action plan is aimed at the empowerment of women and the sensitizations within the associations of women and the local structures.

Numbers of women in the council of Soalandy are victims of violence (conjugal, gender based violence). In response to the complaints received within the council, the mayor and his staff decided to give their support to these women through encouraging legal marriage; promoting women’s Rights, advising women to practice family planning

Our collective is a kind of platform of associations of women. With regard to violence against women and conjugal violence, we have created a listening centre to support women psychologically and give them advice and information on how to resolve their problems. At the centre, many victims of violence come to see us. From their inquiries we could establish a policy for the fight against violence that consists, on one hand, involving men in this fight, and on the other campaigning in the field in order to define the main causes of violence.
