The purpose of the training: 

The training will be focussed on the ways to address gender and family violence using a restorative justice lens. Gender violence is a growing concern these days and when ‘settlement-oriented’ approaches have not significantly helped change this problem, restorative justice offers a huge potential in addressing the causes and consequences of the violence. The needs for healing, empowerment, and accountability are best addressed by RJ, if done properly. With this training, we want to develop a deeper understanding of this violence and equip ourselves with the necessary insights and skills that can help us facilitate in such events of violence.
