The Center for Domestic Violence Prevention (CEDOVIP) is a registered National Non-Governmental Organization (NGO). Initially, it started as the Domestic Violence Demonstration Project under Raising Voices, piloting a violence prevention program in Kawempe Division, Kampala, Uganda.
CEDOVIP works with communities, institutions, civil society and the government to promote the rights of women and girls to create safer, healthier and happier relationships, homes and communities. Our work aims to create changes in the attitudes, behavior and practices that perpetuate violence against women and girls (VAW/G) and HIV in Uganda.
To accomplish our goal(s), CEDOVIP focuses on mobilizing communities to prevent and respond to VAW/G; strengthening prevention and response to VAW/G by civil society organizations, government, local institutions, and institutions of learning; and advocacy for better implementation of existing laws and policies, as well as for passage of new, more effective laws and policies
