Summary

The Idea Dignity Foundation plans to train women survivors of violence in Ecuador so that from their own experiences they can support other women who are still victims of this serious problem. The project will train 20 survivors and they in turn will support 240 victims through: training in rights, promotion of psychosocial support groups, development of a blog to share experiences and strategies, and design of teaching resources for intervention.

Challenge

In Ecuador, 6 out of 10 women have experienced some type of violence, it is estimated that 1 in 4 girls will be sexually abused before they reach 18 years of age and that every 3 days a woman dies at the hands of her partner or ex-partner. The state support that the survivors have and the efforts to avoid this problem are insufficient. With the support of the Foundation, 20 surviving women receive legal, psychosocial support and will receive training to support 240 women who are still victims.

Solution

Currently, victims and survivors of violence receive legal and psychosocial support from the Foundation. If we train them, they can support other women who are still victims. We plan to train them as: trainers, bloggers, facilitators of support groups and designers of teaching materials so they can share their experiences and recommendations and build support networks strategies to reconstruct their life projects and those of their sons and daughters.

Long-Term Impact

The project will train 20 women survivors of violence as: facilitators of support groups, trainers, bloggers, and designers of teaching materials. They, in turn, can support at least 240 women who are still victims, spreading their experience and promoting strategies to end the violence. They will be trained to design and carry out: a blog, workshops, support groups and educational material while still receiving legal and psychosocial support.
