Challenge

Evidence suggests that the establishment of women- girl-only spaces helps to reduce risks and prevent further harm during acute emergency responses. This safe space will provide women and girls with a safe entry point for life-saving services and a place to access information. This point will also offer them an opportunity to engage with each other, build important connections, solidarity and support with other women and girls, exchange information, and rebuild community networks and support

Solution

This integrated space will be offering a range of services including resources, information, social networks, to essential and discreet clinical care and sexual reproductive health services, also various activities such as: GBV case management, individual or group counseling, psycho social support, safety planning and risk reduction, skills-building, recreational activities will be available to girls and women from the facility.

Long-Term Impact

This centre/ safe spaces will promote women's protection and empowerment and help mitigate risk of Gender Based Violence (GBV). Safe spaces can be a key way of building women and girls' social assets.
