We make a difference for people affected by wartime sexual violence around the world. We support survivors and use national and international advocacy to achieve lasting, systemic change.

How we make a difference...

Connect survivors in a movement

We support women from 14 different countries from all continents to join forces. Together they are building a global network that connects survivors of conflict-related sexual violence.

By speaking out, they draw attention to the use of rape as a weapon of war and demand the changes necessary to end the violence and achieve justice.

Holistic care for survivors worldwide

Survivors of sexual violence in conflict need more than medical care. Dr Denis Mukwege and his team at Panzi Hospital have pioneered a holistic approach which combines medical, psychological, legal and socio-economic support.

Together with Panzi, we work to implement the holistic model in different parts of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), and in other countries affected by war.

Ensure accountability for sexual violence

States have a legal and moral responsibility to protect their citizens and ensure perpetrators are held to account. So far, however, the international community is lacking behind its commitments.

We bring like-minded governments together to inspire joint action, for example through monitoring and the systematic use of sanctions.
