GBV is deeply rooted in gender inequality and continues to be one of the most notable human rights violations. UNHCR estimates that 1/3 women will experience violence in their lifetime. The crises in Lebanon increased the protection risks, especially for marginalized groups. The murder of 3 women within the span of 10 days in 2021 provoked outrage in Lebanon, as authorities revealed a doubling of domestic abuse reports in a country going through its most hard-hitting crises.

Plans for evaluation:
Reach — the total number of unique accounts that have seen your stories. This number is usually compared to the average reach of other campaigns.
Impressions — the total number of times users saw your stories. If the same user opened the post/story twice, the reach is 1 but the impressions are 2.
Content interaction — Shares, Replies & Responses
Profile activity — profile visits, website visits, new followers & lost followers.
If action is required, it is measured according to the appropriate metrics.
Example: donations, shares, mentions, participation in an event, booth visit (depending on what action is required)
