Challenge stereotypes/negative attitudes/gender based violence
YWCA uses Street Theatre to challenge Stereotypes and harmful attitudes/practices against girls and women in Rwanda and also to fight gender based violence in communities and humanitarian settings. YWCA brings together actors who first take time to get aware of the situation of the target group victim of stereotypes, discrimination or violence before developing the script. The performances engage audience members and encourage them to reflect on negative attitudes, stereotypes or violence in their communities. Post-performance discussions are then held to reflect on the issues addressed. The Street theatre proves to be a powerful tool towards challenging these unlawful attitudes and practices and also to attract huge number of youth.
