Sexual and Gender Based Violence
Globally, 1 in 3 women will experience gender-based violence in her lifetime.
In the developing world, 1 in 7 girls are married before their 15th birthday, with some child brides as young as 8.
Ethnovision provides psychosocial support and referral support to victims of sexual and gender-based violence. Using women-friendly spaces as an avenue to provide individualised case management services including referrals to survivors of GBV. Together with design for good we model the women-friendly spaces so that women are able to interact with each other building a social support network through participation in income generating or skills building activities.
Community workers distribute information about GBV and available services for women and girls. Men are always involved in GBV awareness sessions ensuring that they are part of the solution.
