August Meeting is an annual event synonymous with Igbo community, where women from home and abroad gather together to deliberate on issues of concern in the community. CCC bought into this platform on Saturday 20th August 2022 to sensitize the catholic women organization of Sacred Heart Catholic Church Oguta on issues around GBV especially as it affects women and girls. Speaking at the occasion, the Executive Director Mrs. Colette Benette solicited their cooperation and support in ending harmful widowhood practices which is the primary issue being addressed under SLOC-VAWG project in Oguta community. She made it known that the traditional council have given their nod to ending obnoxious culture but requesting a documented consent from the women group. She further advised that women should in unionism have documented evidence of acceptance to be presented to the traditional council. In reaction the women applauded the initiative saying that it’s long overdue and pledged their cooperation.
