We have a vision of a South Africa in which women are safe in their communities and where the criminal justice system supports and empowers rape survivors and acts as a deterrent to rapists. Our mission is to promote safety in communities, to reduce the trauma experienced by rape survivors, to empower women, to promote gender equality, to strengthen the criminal justice system and to work actively to address flaws in legislation.
We are unique because we are the one social profit organisation in South Africa that provides rape survivors and their communities with support, access to justice and the means to make change happen. We do this because of our extraordinary expertise and that expertise comes from our commitment to learning from our clients and from the communities we serve.
