Summary

We will provide medical, legal, material and psycho-social support for abused girls in 5 rural villages here. The villages are experiencing extreme poverty and hardship because of climate change and diseases and girls are at a severe disadvantage with abuse especially in the households common and under reported. Abuse comes in the form of physical and sexual with common relatives often the culprits.

Challenge

Domestic abuse is becoming more common with hardship and poverty affecting the rural areas. Poverty is caused by diseases, the Coronavirus pandemic, extreme weather events causing crop failure and the disruptions in economic activities. There is a need to provide assistance to girls who are in this situation and there are very few facilities and support system doing this.

Solution

We will provide material, legal, psycho-social and other support needed for girls affected by domestic violence. We will launch an advocacy campaign in the villages so that the girls have a place to run to and a shelter for their predicament. Affected girls are often with nowhere to ask for assistance and we shall do this.

Long-Term Impact

The well-being of girls affected by violence in the homes is becoming commonplace and helping them is imperative for their well-being and eventually for the well-being of their communities. This is a problem that festers and needed direct intervention.
