Advocacy

Forum For Acid Victims conducts sensitization and awareness raising initiatives in a bid to inform people about issues surrounding acid violence and also to expand our notification system.

We created relationships with community leaders and Community Based Organizations who have been able to notify is about new incidences of acid attacks.

The local leaders have further been trained to be better mediators so as to handle conflict as it arises.

They have also been able to educate their communities about First Aid and what to do in the event of an acid attack; that is, take the patient to the nearest health center, report the case to police and be willing to testify in court.

The leaders (religious leaders, elders, local council representatives, CBO social workers) play an important role in re-integration of the survivor.
