Male Engagement Against Sexual and Gender-Based Violence In Post-Conflict Sierra Leone.
Gender-based violence (GBV) is a serious and urgent concern. An estimated 62 percent of women aged 15–49 report having experienced physical or sexual violence, according to the 2019 SLDHS. With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, it was feared that the rates of GBV, which were already unacceptably high in Sierra Leone, would be exacerbated. Sixty-one percent of ever-married women age 15-49 have experienced spousal violence whether physical, sexual, or emotional by their husband or partner.
Our goal is to empower women to build a better future for themselves and their communities.
Wherever we can.
In a new way.
Strengthen and transform the lives of vulnerable or disadvantaged individuals and families in Sierra Leone. To do this, we have selected the projects that we believe are best suited to achieve these goals and have posted them on this platform so that they can receive the financial support they need to achieve their mission.
