Summary

Gender violence is a painful reality for women and girls in Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay, where the lack of basic services and limited access to rapid and vital assistance put them at constant risk. Grassroots organizations, generally based in remote locations, work as first responders in their communities, saving lives. They provide legal and psychosocial support, deliver training courses, disseminate information, sustain women's shelter and hotlines, and advocate for their rights.

Challenge

COVID-19 has laid bare the systemic world's inequities, and it is clear that women, girls, and marginalized communities are especially affected by them. According to recent data 70% of femicides are perpetrated inside their houses. During confinement, only in Argentina, there had been more than 118 femicides. Statistics shows that there has been a 30% increase in phone consultations on gender violence. Grassroots organizations work under pressure and with very few resources.

Solution

Did you know that building networks is crucial for women and girls at risk? Networking is key to reduce isolation, lack of information, and guarantee their rights. Your donation will support our Program Networks and Alliances Free from Violence - REDAL that strengthens the work of grassroots organizations that come into direct contact with gender-based violence survivors and advocate for their rights. Together we can eradicate all types of violence against women and girls!

Long-Term Impact

We are contributing to build societies where women, girls and LBTIQ+ people enjoy full exercise of their human rights, are empowered to defend and advocate for them, and have access to equal opportunities to develop their abilities and wellbeing, free from all forms of violence. In 2019, 11 organizations from Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay were able to give counselling to 2,000 women on gender violence, human trafficking, women's and LBTIQ+ rights, all with a direct impact on their communities.
