Connecting survivors

A global movement of survivors

Suffering knows no borders. Victims of conflict-related sexual violence struggle with similar problems, whether they are African or European, old or young.

Survivors from around the world have voiced their interest in connecting with others who have been through the same ordeal.

Our aim is to facilitate these connections. By providing the necessary mechanisms and resources, we aim to encourage the creation of a survivor-led global movement of support for victims of conflict-related sexual violence.

Survivors can share their stories, learn from one another, amplify each other’s voices, and discuss how they can draw attention to and fight the use of sexual violence together.

Bringing sexual violence survivors together

We bring survivors from all over the world together. Such a forum provides new avenues for the healing process of individuals. And it creates one strong voice that can no longer be ignored.
