On March 12, the third workshop for the local committee on prevention of domestic violence in Ken-Bulun (Ivanovka) local government was held.

During the workshop, the participants developed an annual work plan for the committee, outlining activities and actions to prevent domestic violence. Each committee member will implement these activities within the authority of their organization.

For instance, a representative from the vocational school emphasized the significance of informing families and individuals at risk about opportunities to pursue a new or additional profession, such as makeup artistry, confectionery, and sewing. These options can enhance the financial stability of women and their families.

In the second part of the seminar, the trainer discussed with the participants "Rights of victims of domestic violence. Features of interaction with victims of gender and domestic violence" and "Response to domestic violence and assistance to victims of domestic violence. Format of emergency and regular meetings of the local committee".

Additionally, participants engaged in situational exercises to learn how to communicate and behave appropriately with victims of violence. The trainer provided detailed feedback on mistakes made by participants in their speech and behavior during these situations.

A meeting was held with Bek Jekshembayev, the head of the local government appointed after the administrative-territorial reform, to discuss the goals, objectives, and progress of the project. Jekshembayev assured his support for the project and shared plans for social work and increasing employment opportunities for unemployed citizens, including women in need of support.

Furthermore, it was announced that the Ivanovka local government will be rebranded as the Ken-Bulun local government post-reform.

The last workshop in Ivanovka is scheduled for March 19th.

Workshops for new Committee on Prevention of Domestic Violence are held with the financial support of the U.S. Embassy in the Kyrgyz Republic within the framework of the project “Increasing Gender Sensitivity of CPDV members in Chui region to reduce and prevent domestic violence”
