20071006 Violence Against Blind Girls in Malawi

In Malawi violence against girls (VAG) is rampant. Research work commissioned between recently by DFID, Action Aid and its partners shows that out of all the incidences of violence in schools 65% of these affect girls while 35% affect boys. None of this research has looked at how violence in school affects girls with disabilities in general and visual impairment in particular.
