Circles Of Support
Kuhluka Movement understands the deep, emotional, psychological, and socio-economic impact domestic violence has on survivors of gender-based violence (GBV). Through the Circles of Support, specialized counselling, legal and health services are provided to victims and survivors of GBV to help restore their sense of self, regenerate and enable them to live to their full potential.
This programme which is currently being implemented in Gauteng and Mpumalanga, South Africa, and Maputo in Mozambique, seeks to provide abused women with safe spaces for sharing, self-expression, support, and healing.
After abuse, women need safe spaces where they can learn to deal with triggers and traumas, safely plan their actions, receive counselling and information on various options and be part of a supportive social network.
The Dignity Pack
In a world where hundreds of women are abused on a daily basis, Kuhluka Movement chose to create a Dignity Pack comprised of basic essentials such as hygiene and sanitary items to be distributed in police stations and medical facilities immediately after a woman experiences a violent event.
Statistics have demonstrated that many a times in horrific numbers, survivors arrive at the Police stations or at medical facilities without their basic belongings, being bags, shoes, their clothes are torn etc.
