Go Dry for January 2017!
Enjoying those festive drinks? Think you could give it all up for a month? Last year, 12 million pledged to go dry for 31 days to raise money & awareness for Alcohol Concern. You can join the millions next month as they take a break from booze. What’s more, this year Alcohol Concern have partnered with Virgin Money Giving to give you the chance to support them and another charity of your choice!
Where do we fit in?
Act4Africa works in impoverished African communities in which alcohol abuse too often fuels gender-based violence. Frequent, heavy drinking is far more common amongst men than women in these regions. The results? Physical aggression and multiple sexual partners.
At least 1 in 3 women in rural Uganda is a victim of physical violence from their male partner, violence that is strongly linked to alcohol abuse. These women struggle to negotiate safe sex and, as a result, are 50% more likely to acquire HIV.
At Act4Africa we strive to provide women and men with healthier, happier lives in which HIV & violence decline and gender equality triumphs.
