The human cost of violence against women and girls is incalculable
What is MTN doing to fight GBV and increase gender equality?
UN Women underscores the essential truth that gender equality transcends fairness – it is a fundamental human right. Realizing this right is pivotal in tackling some of the world’s most critical challenges, ranging from economic crises and healthcare disparities to the urgent issues of climate change, violence against women, and intensifying conflicts.
These challenges disproportionately impact women, yet it is also women who embody the potential and leadership necessary to forge effective solutions. At MTN, we understand that impactful solutions must originate not only within our organization but also from the wider community.
In our commitment to the 16 Days of Activism, we are taking decisive steps: engaging with our women’s groups and employees, collaborating with GBV organisations, governments, and stakeholders to provide support and resources, and investing in technology solutions that play an active role in education, prevention, and support, beyond just the 16 Days.Visit SUSTAINABLE SOCIETIES

What can you do to fight GBV?
Tackling gender-based violence is a vital collective responsibility that demands the unwavering commitment of individuals, communities, and organizations. While UN Women’s 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence serves as a pivotal moment to amplify our collective voice, the fight against GBV extends far beyond these designated days. It is an ongoing battle that requires sustained engagement and action throughout the year.
Do something! Together, our individual efforts can create a transformative impact in the fight against GBV. Actions include raising awareness, educating and empowering others, supporting survivors, advocating for policy change, promoting gender equality, engaging men and boys, participating in community programs, fundraising and volunteering, providing mentorship and education, offering self-defence classes, utilizing art and media, collaborating with local organizations, supporting research, and speaking out against violence.
At MTN, we are always looking to do more, and the 16 Days of Activism against GBV is just the beginning.
