MIFUMI commemorates Jo Cox Foundation's 5th Anniversary
What is MIFUMI
Since its establishment in 1994, MIFUMI has directly changed the lives of more than 50,000 women together with their children through comprehensive services in education, health-care, micro-enterprises and domestic violence advocacy. Being based directly in the countryside is one of MIFUMI’s greatest strengths, making it easier to reach grassroots people.
Violence against women and girls is a world-wide problem which undermines the health, well-being and development of survivors. It is a violation of women’s human rights, stunts individual and societal development and seriously scars future generations. According to the World Health Organisation, 35% of women across the world have experienced either physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence or non-partner sexual violence.
