About ~ 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence

From Peace in the Home to Peace in the World:

The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence is an international campaign originating from the first Women’s Global Leadership Institute sponsored by the Center for Women’s Global Leadership (CWGL) at Rutgers University in 1991. Participants chose the dates November 25, International Day Against Violence Against Women, and December 10, International Human Rights Day, in order to symbolically link violence against women and human rights and to emphasize that such violence is a human rights violation.


018 Golf Challenge is #symbolic in its name for two characteristic 1).O18 representing 18 holes and 2).when adding the numbers gives you 9 months of human gestation that emphasizes the gift of life through a woman and child bond. 018 is also reflective of a fun and interactive experience, as Golf Days are often intimidating, our aim is to #break-perception and showcase Golf as the only sport with a leveled plain field: in true sense.

As it is also known as the gentlemen’s sport with most participants being men, we hope to raise awareness as well as convey a message of support and urge men to take steps towards ending gender violence.

018 Golf in collaboration with Mother and Daughter Bond Organization

018 Golf will embark on a satellite media campaign in partnership with a Mother and Daughter Bond Organization (MADBO) which is an organization based in the United States of America that advocates against Women and children abuse and promotes the well being of Women and their children. The Satellite media campaign will be an awareness initiative that will use media to communicate a non violence collaborative effort to stop Women and children abuse in our communities.

Violence Intervention Program

The 018 Golf Challenge is a fund raising initiative that is meant to provide a small grant for the Violence Intervention Program (VIP). Based on research by the University Of Maryland School Of Medicine, there is proof that a hospital based VIP can help break the cycle of violence and violent crimes that often lead to traumatic experience in most cases affecting Women and children.

It is through the source of citation information such as the University of Maryland School Of Medicine research that 018 Golf facilitated as an outreach program designed to include:

Adoptive Lifestyle & Wellness promotion through clinics and workshops [Golf lessons, Garden

& Harvest DIY kits, clothing and food banks, Art & Toys of Africa, Home shelter database,

Advanced driving, Self-defence classes]

By-Weekly Hospital/ Clinic Kiosk or Front Desk [Peer support group referrals, Counselling

agents, Home shelter/ alternative accommodation assistance, Focus groups, Safe haven,

Social Support network] – Only patients with reported cases will be assisted.
