Fight for the Dignity of African Women and Children works tirelessly to stop cultural traditions destroying lives.
Thousands of African women and children across the world are falling prey to cultural traditions and gender-based violence such as domestic violence, child marriage, rape, sexual cleansing, female genital mutilation and even murder, in the name of culture.
SIX WAYS WE HELP
We work with victims to rebuild their lives, the six ways we help are:
Providing aid such as shelter, food, clothing and other essential items
Safehouses for families fleeing violence
Counselling for the victims of African cultural atrocities
Education for children from low-income families
Education and training for families about culture
Income generation and training activities
