Summary

Gender violence is a painful reality for women and girls in Argentina, Uruguay, and Paraguay. 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. Women, girls, and marginalized communities are especially affected by them. According to recent data, 70% of femicides are perpetrated inside their houses. Statistics show that, during confinement, only in Argentina, there have been 108.403 phone consultations on gender violence. 90% of calls report domestic violence. There were more than 230 femicides. Grassroot organizations work under pressure and with very few resources.

Solution

Did you know that building networks are 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 2020, 11 organizations from Argentina, Paraguay, and Uruguay were able to give counseling to 2,000 women on gender violence, human trafficking, women's and LBTIQ+ rights, all with a direct impact on their communities.
