I’m mad. I had to hear about this campaign from a friend…three days before the dinner.
For such a wonderful campaign, they have such a poor web presence. Puff and pass along this brilliant strategy that turns gender based violence into a societal issue.
How do you feel when your girlfriend, wife cries? What happens when it is your daughter and the pain is over something that another man has done to her.
Most men don’t know how to deal with a woman’s tears. Here is a chance to do something.

If you can attend the dinner here is the Facebook Event page
If you are a blogger, blog about it. Get a million men to donate money to Nairobi Women’s Hospital.
While sadly it is still a reactionary program it is a turning point on how we as Kenyans view violence against women. It is not a women’s issue. It is everyone’s issue and in particular, only a father (and a father to be) can make a lasting and great impact.
We need more fathers, husbands and brothers to stand up and hold their fellow men accountable.
The Gender Violence Recovery Centre (GVRC) is a non-profit making, non-partisan, charitable trust of the Nairobi Women’s Hospital. GVRC main purpose is to mobilize resources to provide free medical treatment and psychosocial support to survivors of gender based violence.
