The associated project Painted Voices of Youth-Advocating against Gender-Based Violence was organized in partnership with Affixed Productions and implemented by Réunion Freetown in collaboration with We Yone Child Foundation.

The project included a painting workshop in which children ages 7-13 years painted their interpretation of gender-based violence. These works were exhibited also on display during Reunion’s art exhibition.

Funded by European delegation to Sierra Leone, Goethe Institute and Purposeful Sierra Leone.
