Pelokgale ̶̶ Enough is enough : Stop gender-based violence Botswana


International Partnerships

Titre : Pelokgale ̶̶ Enough is enough : Stop gender-based violence Botswana

Pays : Botswana

Durée : October 2013 to June 2019

The project’s overall objective was threefold : • reduce the incidence of gender-based violence in Botswana by engaging communities • make communities more conscious of and responsive to such violence by conveying a zero tolerance message and encouraging victims to report their assaulter to the police • strengthen community capacities to deal with such violence and encourage them to collectively act for protection

The project’s edutainment strategy involved : * transcribing the book ‘Stories of courage’, published by KSWS, into a drama series aired on Botswana Television : 26 episodes were created based on these real-life experiences * developing a call-in radio programme aired on Radio Botswana (RB1) after each episode * creating an online space for sharing : people could post their comments, concerns and thoughts on gender issues on KSWS’ website and Facebook page

Almost 80% of the TV show viewers confirmed discussing the issues addressed in each episode with friends, colleagues and family. Focus group research with students showed that the morning after an episode had aired, lively debates would occur on campus to discuss the topics covered by the episode. People also became more conscious of KSWS’ care and support services, as phone calls to the centre increased and peaked during the running of the drama series.
