Jeepyah's safehouse provides shelter to women and often children who have survived domestic and/or sexual violence. This project will provide them with access to justice, access to healthcare, and financial independence. These three services will empower survivors to thrive despite trauma. Justice - hiring lawyers to take cases to trial Health - care for injuries, pregnancies from sexual assault, deliveries Financial Independence - vocational training, purchasing equipment, start- up costs

Violence against women is a serious but taboo subject in many areas of Myanmar. Survivors of domestic and sexual assault had nowhere safe to go, so we opened our safehouse in 2017, and have hosted over 35 survivors since then. While we succeed in providing a safe haven for these women and their children, we want to do more. Many sexual assault cases never go to trial, abortion is illegal so pregnancy common, and earning an income as a single mother can still be very challenging in Myanmar.


Accessing justice - we will fundraise to cover the legal fees of taking a case to court. A lawyer is absolutely necessary for this process; cases do not go to court otherwise Healthcare - we will fundraise to cover the cost of visits to the hospital for all health-related issues that are the result of assault, including delivery and ante-natal care Livelihood- fundraising for vocational training, equipment (sewing machine), materials, business start-up costs

Long-Term Impact

Prosecuting and sentencing rapists establishes a deterrent for potential rapists. When the consequences to such acts are known, they can help prevent assaults. Providing healthcare to survivors of sexual assault is necessary for survivors to carry to term pregnancies they did not plan on and ensures any resulting children get a strong start at life despite traumatic circumstances. Livelihood support gives unmarried mothers financial independence so they can provide for their children.
