  • ‘Volunteers’ are NGO-trained community volunteers. ‘Group members’ participate in NGO-run group meetings in the community. ‘General’ refers to general community members who are neither volunteers nor group members. ‘Expected activity level’ refers to the degree to which NGO staff judged the group to be actively engaged in tackling VAW—rather than passive—at the stage of sampling.

  • *NGO staff cannot judge activity levels of community members who do not join NGO events.
