Establishment of a GBV Information Center

by Rape Hurts Foundation

Summary

The Sexual & Gender Based Violence is ever on the increase in Uganda, sex related crimes accounts for 65% of the total crimes committed in Eastern Uganda. Though there are some GBV service Organization & Institutions, the survivors and victims in Uganda, this information isn't know to the public. So there is need for an information center which can provide information and referrals for the said victims.

Challenge

Women and Children especially girls who have experienced GBV have multiple and complex needs which includes privacy, medical care, safe accommodation, psychosocial counselling, protection and/or legal advice. Therefore, an effective response to GBV requires a comprehensive set of services. Since it is virtually impossible for a single small organization such as Rape Hurts Foundation (RHF) to provide all services in the required quality, a multi-sectorial response that coordinates the services

Solution

In so doing, RHF intends to establish GBV Information Center in Jinja. This information center will be tasked to do the following;- 1. Develop a data base for service providers in East Africa who provide a range of services to survivors and/or victims of GBV within this region. 2. Take information to the people in their native languages. 3. Conduct massive awareness trainings on GBV & how it can be avoided or prevented via local FM Radio Stations, Local TV, Talk Shows, Print Media, etc

Long-Term Impact

Creation of a harm and violent free involvement for women and children.
