The primary aim of the Consortium is to strive for the end of GBV, to increase support for survivors, and to empower those working to change the conditions that lead to GBV. The Consortium recognises that promoting the individual and collective agency of targeted communities, particularly women and girls, is an effective strategy to change the societal structures and norms that perpetuate GBV. Consortium Members work to help communities who are affected by or are vulnerable to GBV to understand its drivers, to know where they can go for help, to feel empowered to take action, and to feel better protected as a result of our interventions.
Programming of Member organisations centre on response, prevention, and mitigation of GBV. The Consortium also fosters building in-country capacity and promotes in-country collaboration in Sierra Leone and Malawi.
