Two new projects we are supporting in 2021 are taking major strides in the development and advocacy of women’s rights.

The Mbokodo Project provides empowerment, self-defence, and mental health support for victims of rape and gender-based violence. The Ntsika yeThemba Project adopts the same objective of eliminating GBV, aiming its educational focus instead at young men.

In combination, the projects are a refreshing strategy for how to respond to and prevent GBV. Crucially, by involving men in the process, these projects abandon the damaging implication that GBV is a woman’s responsibility.

Both projects are spearheaded by the inspirational team at The Justice Desk in South Africa.

Best Foot Forward 2021

We’re asking for your help so that SHE can put HER best foot forward.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, violence against women and girls has intensified.

The opportunity to gain education and skills is the key to HER long-term empowerment.

Our goal is to raise $150,000 in 24 hours on the 12th November 2021, so that disadvantaged women and girls can have access to opportunity through education.
