Survivor Empowerment

At MIFUMI we believe that violence against women is a result of historically unequal power relations between men and women that are reflected in existing gender relationships in society. We realise these unequal displays of power often place women in a position of societal disadvantage. This is why our main priority is to empower women and place them at a greater position in society while also ensuring their protection.
