Gender-based violence is prevalent in the metropolitan district of San Juan de Lurigancho, Lima. Asociación Peruana Mujer y Familia (APMF) works with grassroots organizations, community members and public officials to combat and prevent violence and to secure access to basic protections, care and remedies against aggressors. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to enhance peace and security in Peru. APMF’s activities strengthen grassroots organizations through education and training and build peer-to-peer learning and action networks.
