Gender-Based Violence

Violence directed against people because of their gender is the most severe form of discrimination and remains part of everyday life for too many living in South Africa today.

Our support in this area therefore covers various initiatives such as:

  • Training of professionals in close contact with victims/or offenders
  • Support for victims of domestic and gender-based violence
  • Development of educational material to tackle gender-based violence and help prevent future abuse
  • Advocacy, awareness-raising and capacity building activities on gender-based and sexual harassment
  • Research, analysis, and data collection, including survey research that can be used to inform policy and action on the ground
  • Networking, e.g. fostering collaboration between local stakeholders working in the field of gender-based violence.
