The "Make Your Voice Heard" project, which aims to end gender-based violence by encouraging women to speak up about violence and raising their awareness with regard to their rights by:
• Educating women about the laws that protect them, and teach them storytelling using podcasts to talk about situations of violence that they have personally experienced, or were experienced by one of their acquaintances in order to draw the attention of the community and move public opinion towards these issues.
• Using social networks to gather stories, share experiences, legal information, and publish Infographic to promote the initiative and ensure that other groups benefit from this experience.
• Launching a website to disseminate the stories of the beneficiaries and their knowledge. The website contains a platform to provide assistance and answer questions and provides the contact information of existing listening and hosting centres which provides services to the victims of gender based violence.
