By BBN Staff: The Child Development Foundation (CDF) this morning launched its Prevention of Family Violence: Private Sector Engagement Campaign.

The campaign is being launched in partnership with the Spotlight Initiative.

The campaign will engage the private sector in bringing awareness to prevent family violence by expanding knowledge and capacity for early warning signs of women and children at risk and to know of resources available to them.

The private sector organizations that will participate in the campaign will share posters inside their facilities and have members of their organization attend virtual training sessions to increase staff knowledge on gender-sensitive issues, identifying signs of violence, and access to referral services.

 Organizations will also provide women who frequent their establishments with referral cards and contact numbers provided by CDF.

The Spotlight Initiative is a global, multi-year programme between the European Union (EU) and the United Nations (UN) focused on eliminating all forms of violence against women and girls (VAWG).

The Spotlight Initiative in Belize is contributing to ending family violence by strengthening policy and legislations that will guarantee increased protection of women and girls, building the capacity of state and non-state actors to respond to family violence, expanding the range of services available and addressing social norms and behaviours that promote violence against women and girls.

Everyone is invited to join and be a part of the campaign.
