Challenge

64 514-The number of sexual crimes reported to the South African Police Service, 2011/12. 21 000 - The number of people assisted by Mosaic to access justice and gain protection from their abusive intimate partners. Despite attention being paid to Gender Based Violence (GBV) in South Africa, the emphasis has been at a policy level. There is a monumental need for service delivery for the victims of such crimes. This project will provide direct services to more than 10 000 GBV victims.

Solution

Mosaic provides a holistic spectrum of services to victims of domestic and sexual violence. Services include: containment counselling and medico-legal advice and referrals; educational workshops where women are taught assertiveness and communication skills and female youth are taught about their sexual reproductive health and rights. Educational workshops are also offered to men, who are taught about domestic and sexual violence, cultural myths are challenged towards behavior change.

Long-Term Impact

The project will ensure that 10 000 people receive information and medico legal education about domestic and sexual violence. The long-term effects will include 10 000 people with: increased self-esteem, effective communication and assertiveness skills - these skills will be implemented within the individual's community which will, in the long-term, positively impact the community.
