moraba_logo_alpha.png As part of the UNiTE campaign to End Violence Against Women and Girls, the Southern African Regional
Office of UN Women has commission Afroes to create a mobile game targeting young people that:

1. Identifies Gender Based Violence (GBV), including difficult concepts such as acceptable
boundaries, intimate partner rape, emotional and economic abuse
2. Empowers users to take action to actively address GBV by encouraging reporting, testimony,
individual interventions, the promotion of safe behavior and beneficiary services
3. Changes mindsets surrounding gender stereotypes, harmful social norms, cultural practices and
peer pressure

The free mobile game is a quiz adaptation of the hugely popular Southern African board game Morabaraba also know as Umlabalaba or Zulu Chess. The game adds a quiz element that forces users to answer questions about GBV and in doing so educates and empowers users about Gender Based Violence.
