In PNG, when we talk about GBV, we think of men as perpetrators, says Wesh Siku.
He is the project coordinator for 1-Tok Kaunselin with Child Fund PNG.
He says 1-Tok Kaunselin Helpim Lain project was set up to help women and children going through Family and Sexual Violence.
But with the launch of the project in August 20, the first call in was from a man.
Two more calls that followed were also from men.
“That made us to stop and think,” he said.
Now, almost 2 years, the centre has had well over 6000 calls, 50 percent of which are from men.
