The Tibetan Centre for Human Rights and Democracy (TCHRD) is pleased to announce that the campaign against Gender-Based Violence (GBV) has been overwhelmingly successful. The opening ceremony on 25 November was well attended by the exile Tibetan community in India and others, and everyone was eager to listen and participate. Our guest speakers discussed statistics and stories that were poignant and informative with a highly engaged audience. Our digital campaign, continuing until 10 December, has been an even greater success. The videos of GBV survivors sharing their personal stories went viral with almost 30,000 public engagements with our posts in less than one week.
