A one day training program on Gender based violence program was concluded on 28 April 2023 in Tambura County of South Sudan. The training was organized by the Naabaya Foundation. The training brought together 20 participants who were guided on basic information on gender based violence and psychosocial support programs.  17 participants were females, and 3 were males. The one day program discussed the aspect of physical, sexual, economical and psychological violence. Speaking during the training, Mr. Joseph Parata, who was the training facilitator, said that the aim of the training was to create awareness about gender based violence and its effects on the family. Mr. Joseph said that the people of Tambura have gone through difficult situations of fighting and killings in the past two years. The effects of this violence are being felt in the family as many people are unable to cater to the families.  Because of that, the social fabric of the community has been marked with gender based violence in the county.  Tambura County has witnessed sub-national violence resulting in high-level displacement within and beyond the county. It was estimated that over 80,000 individuals were displaced within and beyond the neighbouring counties. Some of the displaced people have now returned, but the effect of the violence is still visible in the communities.
