Type of the activity: First-time Activity
Focus area: Female Genital Mutilation, Women Empowerment, Domestic Violence, Honor Killing, Sexual Exploitation and Rape, Early and Forced Marriages

The activity aims to address the issue of gender based violence, which is still very much prevalent in today’s society. Especially during the COVID-19, 6 out of 10 women reported that their difficulties have worsened due to the pandemic. COVID-19 demonstrated that we are unprepared to respond to the rapid escalation of all forms of GBV. To ensure that no woman is left behind, this activity will educate, advocate, and create a safe space for people to discuss experiences and shed light on GBV.

Firstly, set the desired objectives. Recognize that GBV is a worldwide issue and set objectives revolving around raising awareness and exchanging ideas on GBV.
The next step taken is to brainstorm ideas and start the project proposal: Brainstorming sessions between core members to finalize activity plans to set objectives.
Next is team recruitment. Recruitment announcement was posted in the core team members group to recruit passionate team members from SCORA Thailand.
Then, necessary meetings need to be held in order to assign work and finalize the timeline for the project as well as work allocation.
Next, take action. To achieve the stated objectives, 7 educational infographics on GBV and GBV Instagram filters will be published on SCORA social media throughout the 16 days of activism.
Lastly, feedback and evaluation would be required to determine the success of the project according to the success indicators through reflection sessions and Instagram insights analysis.
Plans for evaluation:
The outcome of the activity will be evaluated based upon the social media reach. The likes on Instagram can be indicative of how many people had access to this information. There will also be a meeting for the project staff at the end of the project to provide feedback for improvements of future projects, as well as, evaluating the success of the project by looking at statistics provided by the Instagram “Insights” to check for account reach and interaction from the start to the end of the 16 days of activism.
