By Mugisho Theophile, Executive Director of Safe World Field Partner, COFAPRI:
"In an exchange with COFAPRI women, we learned a lot reasons why abused women often experience poverty: because of men’s violence in the home.
Abused women bear their moral, spiritual and material wounds, so they are helpless to overcome husbands’ abuse. This is often caused by the patriarchal motivation of men who yearn domination over women in society and in their home."
