• 1st EXPERIENCE IN,

    MY INTERNSHIP.

    The sto­ries I heard from inter­view­ing patients in the hos­pi­tal wards taught me how pre­dom­i­nant con­struc­tions of mas­culin­ity tied to phys­i­cal vio­lence in the house­hold. Mean­while, I also assisted with GVRC’s pos­i­tive mas­culin­ity cam­paign with Kenya’s National Seven’s Rugby Team. These rugby play­ers were the role mod­els of many youth in Kenya and they talked in uni­ver­si­ties and used their influ­ence to lower instances phys­i­cal abuse in the house­hold by pos­i­tively alter­ing soci­etal per­cep­tions of mas­culin­ity.”

  • WARM HEARTED STAFF,

    ALWAYS OPEN TO WORK.

    “I vol­un­teered at GVRC for one year, in the Social Work Depart­ment. Dur­ing my time at GVRC I worked with such lovely, warm hearted staff who were always open to work­ing with me, men­tor­ing me, and allow­ing me to hone my skills as a Social Worker. I had a chance to merge the the­o­ret­i­cal aspects of social work into prac­ti­cal work. I espe­cially enjoyed the ward rounds, where I inter­acted with sur­vivors. I also worked with the staff to assist those sur­vivors who needed shel­ter, legal aid, and adop­tion ser­vices among many oth­ers. I vis­ited all the GVRC branches and loved inter­act­ing with staff and part­ners of GVRC. This was indeed a life chang­ing expe­ri­ence I wouldn’t trade for any other!”

  • EXPERIENCE GAINED IN COUNSELING SURVIVORS .

    GVRC has put a lot of impact upon my life from the time I came to work as an intern. In the first place, it is the only insti­tu­tion I came to know, whose main pur­pose is to bring back mean­ing, to Gen­der Based Vio­lence sur­vivors’ lives and their fam­i­lies.
