Most of reported cases of sexual and intimate partner violence do not make it to courts and most of cases that make it courts do not get convictions. This is also compounded by the fact that a lot of time, victims of sexual violence are unaware of their rights and are unsure about what legal protection is available to them. Our legal team are highly trained and passionate about using their skills for social good. They offer free legal counsel by phone or in person and some offer pro-bono legal representation.
With the help of highly-trained in-house and partner practitioners, we are able to provide counselling and therapy to support survivors on their path to recovery.
