My life with my husband was a living hell. I used to be beaten every day, even when I had not done anything wrong. I have got very scary scars in my head, due to the beatings. Even if I am to remove my head scarf, you will be shocked.

However, after WLSA trained some women from NCCW and the traditional counsellors on Gender and gender based violence, the women were confident enough to finally face him and made him realise that it was a crime to beat a woman. After realising his wife had rights and he could be arrested for beating her he started changing. Mrs Chishimba has this to say, “I can testify that all is well in our home and my husband respects me so much as a human being. I really want to thank WLSA for bringing such a good programme which has saved my life”.(Mrs Chishimba,not her real name)
