HELVETAS Tajikistan concluded its Family and Youth Day Events

HELVETAS Tajikistan in the framework of the ‘Access to Justice’ Project and in cooperation with the Prevention of Domestic Violence Project organised several events in Dushanbe on the occasion of the International Day of Family and Youth Day from May 14-23, 2016. 
The main aim was to raise the awareness of youth and women on family law, domestic violence as well as on the significance of family as a social institution. Similar events are being organised annually by HELVETAS Tajikistan and mainly include legal quizzes, drama related to family issues as well as songs and dances performed by young artists.
This year’s Youth Day Event attracted the public’s attention through flash mobs performed by young dancers in three different places of the city. The young performers called public for action against domestic violence, disrespectful behaviour to women and family values.
The ‘Access to Justice’ Project is implemented by HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation, in consortium with UNDP Tajikistan and financial support of the Swiss Government. The objective of the Project is to raise legal literacy and support free legal assistance in family law related issues.
