Summary

We run a safe house where we house women who are survivors of GBV and their children. We take them through counselling and the healing process. During their stay, we offer them vocational skills they can use to support themselves once they leave the shelter. Our current shelter is rented, hence expensive to maintain. The new safe house is meant to ensure funds are maximized in assisting the women. We plan to have a vocational unit that additional serves other women from vulnerable backgrounds.

Challenge

Our current safe house incurs a lot of expenses, with rent only amounting to 4,000 USD each month. This means that most funds meant to assist the survivors is majorly spent on expenses. We have insufficient classroom space for the vocational training, only allowing us to take up 25 students at a time. This also means that we can only conduct training for a single skill type at a time. We are also limited in amenities like land for those who would opt to learn agricultural skills.

Solution

We've already procured the land for this project. Once we do away with rent expenses we'll be able to inject more funds to supporting the women. This means we can be able to cover the training fees for the women as well as aid the survivors in starting sustainable business. The vocational centre will offer skills such as; caregiving, beauty, recycling hand skills projects, agriculture and so on. Our agricultural land will also create sustainability by proving farm produce for the women at centre

Long-Term Impact

Our aim is to empower women and fight GBV. We want to ensure that survivors who go through our safe house are not forced to return to the same cycle of abuse, just because they lack means to support themselves and their children. Additionally, we would like to give hope to women from poor backgrounds by giving them a chance to uplift themselves from poverty. By empowering women to be self reliant, we ensure that most women don't stay in abusive situations for a lack of option.
