Act Now

The purpose of Act Now is to educate, facilitate and encourage the sharing of knowledge in the area of violence against women (VAW). In Sri Lanka, statistics indicate that VAW is widespread. This is the only organised portal in the country that offers a store of resources on VAW and provides a supportive framework for victim-survivors. We hope to empower both victim-survivors and bystanders to share information, act now and unite for a better future. The website is an initiative of the Center for Women’s Research (CENWOR) and is supported by Women Defining Peace (WDP). WDP is a project funded by the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) and implemented by a consortium of: World University Service of Canada (WUSC) and Co-water International Incorporated. Research support was provided by: Young Researchers’ Collective (YRC).
