Parts of the message are as follows:
“Violence against women and girls destroys lives, and causes unmentioned pain, suffering and illness. It also brings about economic sufferings too. According to recent studies, the cost of life partner abuse is equal to 5.2 percent of global economy. Furthermore, the medical and court costs of violence against women, on the family and national budges, destroy income and production. For example in Vietnam the cost and loss that is caused by domestic violence equal to 1.4 percent of the country’s national GDP in 2010. In Britain, in 2009, the cost of domestic violence included the related services costs, loss in economic production and human and emotional cost equal to 16 billion pounds.”
According to this report, an international certificate of attendance was given to the participants of the 3-day workshop.
