Gender Based Violence is a reality that many women in South Africa face. It has been proven that when women are able to financially sustain themselves, they are less vulnerable to abuse and exploitation. By providing economic opportunities for women, we are restoring the power back into her hands to protect herself, provide for her family, and reach for a better future.
