The Ghanaians Against Child Abuse (GACA) social drive was launched by Her Excellency Mrs. Samira Bawumia in November 2017. The campaign seeks to reduce the acceptance of social practices that have negative consequences on children, by creating a critical mass of people to promote the adoption of behaviours favourable to the protection of children and adolescents. Ultimately, the social drive is expected to support the reduction of violence against children and adolescents, including harmful practices.

The GACA campaign is a joint Programme by the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development, and the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection and the Ministry of Education, NGO partners as well as other key development partners, with support from UNICEF. The campaign is coordinated by the Department of Community Development.

The 19th of November 2018 have been proposed for the GACA anniversary event as the date coincide with the World Day for the Prevention of Child Abuse.
As part of the celebration , we invite all our volunteers to join us on the 19th of November 2018 as we celebrate the journey so far.

Time 10:00am to 1:00pm

Venue: La Palm Royal Beach Hotel

Special Guest: Her Excellency Mrs Samira Bawumia

Come let celebrate the GACA Campaign together!!!

This morning (Tuesday 6th November, 2018) the Domestic Violence Unit under the Ministry of Gender, Children & Social Protection (MoGCSP), organised a capacity building training workshop for some key stakeholders on 'Sexual Gender-Based Violence' (SGBV).
The training which gathered religious leaders, heads of schools, and teachers, was to equip them with knowledge and skills to better perform in their line of work in the fight against SGBV in Ghana.

According to Md. Malonin Asibi, Executive Secretary for the Domestic Violence Unit, the move was also to strengthen collaboration between the Ministry of Gender and stakeholders so as to expand the scope of advocacy and efforts channeled at addressing SGBV issues.

Addressing participants, the Chief Director for MoGCSP, Dr. Afisah Zakariah entreated them to agents of change by using the knowledge acquired through the training to respond appropriately to issues of SGBV.
She also urged participants to be ready to always blow the whistle against violence and report to the appropriate authorities, as well as giving support to victims.

Both Mr Adolf Awuku ( National Coordinator for the Coalition on Domestic Violence Legislation in Ghana), and Dr. Rita O. Amankwah (Director for Social Protection Directorate) made presentations respectively on 'Understanding SGBV and working with its victims/survivors' and 'Understanding the Ghana Social Protection Policy'
