This project aims to enable access to justice for vulnerable women who normally don’t dare to report sexual violence. Individual women receive counselling and are supported to report their cases and claim justice. Paralegal staff of local community based organisations are trained to support women survivors of violence. Systems for reporting and redressing cases are strengthened by training for the public district legal service providers.
