The West African Civil Society Forum (WACSOF) participated in a meeting convened by the ECOWAS themed – Establishment of a Regional Partners/CSOs/NSAs Working Group Against Gender Based Violence held on the 12th of October, 2020.

In the meeting were different organizations, CSOs and WACSOF national platform leaders. It was an opportunity for WACSOF and other CSOs to interact and come up with concrete solutions towards the issue of Gender Based Violence.
