Challenge

Gender Based Violence in South Africa is 10x above the global average. Wise4Afrika was founded on the basis of fighting against Gender Based Violence. Majority of Gender Based Violence cases are either not reported or if reported, they never end up in court. Our justice system is quick to believe the perpetrators and subsequently the victims never end up reporting their cases.

Solution

Wise4Afrika would like funding to provide legal representation/support to the women & girls who are not able to afford legal assistance. We want to give a voice to the voice less. A lot of the victims of gender based violence come from impoverished areas and through our program we would like to educate women & girls on their rights and what legal action they can take.

Long-Term Impact

This project will educate women on their legal rights. The project will also provide the victims with the courage and support to report the perpetrators. This will help end the scourge of gender based violence in communities and in homes.
