DOVA in Sierra Leone:

In October 2011 Rights4Change provided a DOVA workshop for Women's and Human Rights NGOs in Sierra Leone. The workshop was hosted by RADA and Action Plus. In the workshop participants learned how to work with DOVA, and started to work on their DOVA-assessment, which they will complete after the training. The group decided to assess the human rights impacts of the fact that customary law and courts do not follow the Domestic Violence Act of Sierra Leone.
The printed copies of DOVA were available just before the training is Sierra Leone, so we could hand them the first official copy of the instrument.
