Base line survey conducted for implements this project effectively at grass root level. The base line survey conducted from 10th – 25th of September 2016. The main objective of base line study is to find out the current statistical situation of working area, to monitor the activities at result based, to find out the new issues and solutions. This base line survey was conducted at following districts through above mentioned partners.
After the base line survey, entered its values in excel sheet to find out the results and for data analysis. This process really helped to introduce this project into the field. From that this project will get positive result at grass root level.
This baseline survey provides useful huge information on violence against women at grass root level. This was a huge task to collect the baseline information from each district (70 villages in 7 districts). It gave quite interesting information which is good to measure the project results can be measure periodically. This survey was carried out NGO representatives with their field workers. This base line survey is the emergence need to analyze the violence situation in each district. Women don’t aware on legal proceedings and remedies.
This is the right time to make awareness on Domestic Violence in villages. Women felt “domestic violence is their personnel problem how should third person interfere to solve that”. Some of the women felt “women should tolerate the domestic violence for their children’s education”. Men felt “family honor is only depend on women, if she is not right or don’t tolerate the violence the family honor getting spoiling”. Some of the men felt “making violence on women is the rights of husband, if he is not done that; he is not a man before society”.
Even though we are giving awareness on gender based violence in some of the districts were not aware much. This survey gave the different experience in field. Women were violated on the basis of poverty, physically challenges, insecurity, orphanage, vengeance of husband’s relations, illiteracy, etc. Non-Government Organization should help to women those who are more ignorance of family structure
Advocates and protection officers also need to enhance their sensitive level on domestic cases. They also support to rebuild the family structure even the women in insecure circumstance. An order copies from court is not sufficient to survivors for their peaceful life unless it implemented. Grass root level field visit and continues counseling only give solution of domestic violence.
During the data collection firm to get answers from married men on domestic violence and house hold sharing. They didn’t understand the purpose the data collection. Some of the men said, “Domestic violence is casual in village, for that why you bring this questionnaire?” men felt it the spontaneous process within the family so they don’t gave proper answers at the time of data collection.
Women getting fear to say their case studies with field worker. Problem will increase if any one neighbor shares this data collecting to their husband. Some of the women till not aware on legal remedies, so they hesitate to go make a complaint in station and in NGO’s also.
Time consumed to collect information from advocate and protection officers. They asked to field coordinators about the data collection purpose, aim and goal. So it takes time to clarify their doubts with Managing Trustee of ADECOM Network.
Very difficult to collect those data within limited budget. Phased difficulties for adopt the volunteers to help with field coordinators. Data entering process also little difficult to write each answers in the open type answering format.
