Find out more about our work

We support survivors’ demands for a world where sexual violence as a weapon of war is no longer tolerated, and bears consequences for individual perpetrators and states. We work for a future where survivors receive the holistic care and compensation they need to rebuild their lives. We create opportunities for survivors to speak out and be heard, and where they can organise to create change, influence policies, and demand justice and accountability.

Mass atrocities, including sexual violence, continue in #DRC daily with almost complete impunity. We are convinced that there can be no peace without respecting victims’ right to justice.

What we do

Voice: Connecting Survivors

When survivors speak up, the use of sexual violence as a tactic of warfare and terrorism can no longer be ignored.

Holistic Care

We promote quality holistic care for survivors: medical treatment, psychosocial care, socioeconomic programmes
and legal assistance.

Justice and Accountability

We work with survivors, governments, international organisations and NGOs to advocate for holistic justice.
