Abstract: The revelation of this research has clearly shown the dynamics and the obsessive nature of the causes of Sexual Gender Based Violence in most rural communities of Nebbi district. Research also reveals that the dominant factors for the causes of sexual and gender based violence are centered around the aspects of cultural attributes, poverty, substance abuse and human nature among the core issues that perpetuate Sexual Gender Based Violence. The vast illiteracy levels as revealed by findings in most rural communities tends to accelerate or condone Sexual Gender Based Violence. They also reveals that poverty provides a sense of vulnerability that leads to Sexual Gender Based Violence in that it propels the female gender to subdue to even the worst circumstance of infringement on the freedoms and rights. Further research findings reveal that Sexual Gender Based Violence is condoned and given ground by the attributes of culture.
