MIFUMI Publications

Mifumi have published a four-part connected series of companion documents:

A Counsellor’s Companion: A MIFUMI Manual for empowering women out of violence and abuse

The Caseworkers Companion: A MIFUMI manual for supporting key domestic violence services

The Duty Bearers Companion: A MIFUMI manual on domestic violence

 If you require any more information please contact MIFUMI.

The Counsellor’s Companion

The Caseworkers Companion is the second comprehensive training manual on domestic violence produced by MIFUMI. The Manual can be used as a tool by caseworkers and legal officers as it provides information on key services for women and the necessary training on how to support survivors of domestic violence and help them secure justice from the criminal and civil justice system.

This companion covers training on how to receive, counsel and refer patients while meeting their appropriate needs. It also presents well-researched and internationally accepted standards on domestic violence training and draws on knowledge gained from 20 years of work with women in Uganda.

Based on several years of experience of MIFUMI’s work through survivors shelters and advice centers,  we understand that survivor-centers are often the first port of call for many women who suffer abuse and, therefore, this manual provides the adequate procedures needed for caseworkers, paralegals and legal officers to help women centre their journey to empowerment and exercise their right to a life free of violence.

It has been of great importance for MIFUMI to produce this body of work because of MIFUMI’s unique position as a grassroots, woman-centric and home grown agency that understands the histories and context in which women and girls weave their lives and negotiate strategies to resist violence.
