IEVAWC

About Me: 

Initiative for the elimination of violence against women and children (IEVAWC) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization (NGO), that is committed to preventing, eliminating, and providing lasting solutions to gender violence such as wife-battering, rape and child sexual abuse in the society, so as to create an enabling environment towards nation building.

IEVAWC, although founded June 14, 2006, was officially registered with the CAC July 18, 2008. The Organization comprises a team of young men and women working together to provide solutions and answers to questions posed to us by women and children who have been violated in one way or the other.

Violence against women and children is a big health issue and a human right concern in our society today. Worldwide, one out of three women suffers physical or emotional abuse in their lifetime. While 50% of female assault survivors are 15 years or younger, 10% of boys are sexually abused before they turn 18.

Therefore we intend to achieve our aim, mission and vision by giving adequate advice and confidential counseling services to victims of gender violence through sensitive education and enlightenment campaigns such as seminars, talk shows, interactive forums, concerts, etc. IEVAWC is not only out to just identify and penalize, but also to rehabilitate the aggressors, so as to promote tolerance and peace and to learn to reject violence as a means to any end.
