74% of boys who witnessed physical or sexually assaultive behavior in the year following the program successfully intervened to stop the assault.

 In the slums of Nairobi, where their program started, 1 in 4 girls are raped  every year.  To a global community in need of a truly effective solution to gender based violence, NMNW is uniquely qualified to lead the effort.
