Resilience  Building for GBV Survivors


The Anglophone crisis in the Northwest Region of Cameroon has led to a significant increase in gender-based violence (GBV), with one in every three women experiencing violence, coercion, or abuse. This project aims to improve the social, economic, and legal protection of GBV survivors while fostering their resilience. The project aims to provide comprehensive social support, economic empowerment, and legal protection, focusing on psychosocial care, economic stability, and self-reliance.

The outbreak has resulted in a distressing surge in gender-based violence (GBV). Shockingly, one in every three women in the region has experienced violence, coercion, or abuse, often at the hands of individuals they know intimately, including husbands and male family members. This prevalent GBV not only perpetuates and exacerbates gender inequalities but also poses significant threats to the physical and psychological well-being,dignity, security, and autonomy of its victims.


By focusing on enhancing : 1. Social Protection through psychosocial support and counseling services to help survivors cope with the deep scars caused by GBV. 2. Economic Empowerment by providing livelihood support opportunities such as skills transfer,training, vocational education, and access to microfinance services, and , 3. Legal Protection by strengthening the legal framework and increase survivors' access to legal protection via legal aid services and access to justice.

Long-Term Impact

The project will create a transformative impact on the prevalence of gender-based violence as it recognizes that a holistic approach is required to break the cycle of violence and provide survivors with the necessary support to rebuild their lives. The project would restore the physical and psychological well-being, dignity, security, and autonomy of GBV survivors, while also contributing to the broader goal of reducing gender inequalities in the region.
