This report explores the key findings of a baseline quantitative household survey undertaken across 15 communities in Ituri Province in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) in July 2015. The survey was conducted as part of the integrated research component of Tearfund’s project ‘Engaging with Faith Groups to Prevent Violence Against Women and Girls in Conflict-affected Communities’, which is funded by UK aid from the UK government as part of the What Works to Prevent Violence Against Women and Girls? Global Programme.

The project aims to address the underlying root causes of violence against women and girls (VAWG), and particularly sexual violence, by engaging and equipping faith leaders and local faith groups to transform the attitudes, behaviours and social norms within their communities that support gender inequality and enable VAWG.
