Key pathways and strategies

Mifumi uses The Theory of Change and its six key pathways to tackle domestic violence and recognises that actions against domestic violence is required simultaneously at all levels of pathways for a significant and sustainable impact to occur. Through this process women and girls have to remain at the centre of all action. For Mifumi, the key pathways to change include supporting and protecting women through women-centred services lobbying district leaders and bringing about legislative change. Furthermore at Mifumi we believe these local efforts have to be linked to national, regional and international action to address the global problem of violence against women.

The first level of change we tackle operates on an individual and intimate level through individual protection.

Handholding

MIFUMI protects women by handholding and escorting women to the Police, local councillors, and to courts including clan courts, local council courts and courts of law. Women are also handheld during referrals to hospitals and clinics and other local authorities. The personalised advocacy ensures women are not intimidated by law enforcement officers and receive a positive experience and outcome of the case.

Handholding also serves to empower women to exercise the right to be free of violence. When Survivors are handheld to seek justice their Rights-defined selves emerge from the supportive encounters with police, magistrates and other judiciaries. Domestic violence survivors  come to take on rights consciousness. Survivors begin to define themselves as rights holders and to see their experience as human rights abuse and their stories as narratives of human rights abuse.
