Join MADRE for a training on strategies to prevent, address, and document domestic violence in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. The training – based on our toolkit – will highlight best practices from Global South organizations that safely and effectively adapted their work on domestic violence when faced with the global health crisis. Rooted in examples from these groups, the training will focus on tools that can be adapted to any local context and will include a discussion on the various forms of domestic violence.
MADRE will provide a complete training four times over the next ten months. The material at each training will be the same, so no need to attend more than one training. Two will be in French, Spanish and English, and two in Arabic, Kurdish and English. Each session will be two hours.

The Domestic Violence Toolkit
MADRE and our coalition partners compiled best practices by Global South organizations on preventing, addressing, and documenting domestic violence and formatted them into an adaptable toolkit for local groups seeking ways to safely adjust their work in the COVID-19 context. Our toolkit includes scripts, media messaging tips, and interactive resources for community engagement. We provide practical tips for working in conflict areas as well as rural and urban settings. We also include sections on addressing violence towards LGBTIQ people and people with disabilities, and on working with men as allies. The toolkit is available in English, Arabic, French, Kurdish, Spanish, and Congolese Swahili.
