Helping prevent GBV

Emthonjeni Women’s Forum (EWF) was established in May of 2010 and is registered as a Trust CF54/2010 to assist in preventive and responsive measures to gender based violence and in addressing behaviour change gaps for survivors and perpetrators of domestic violence in Zimbabwe. Emthonjeni Women’s Forum was founded specifically to assist women overcome domestic violence and realise their economic potential as well as creating a platform where they can share and exchange information on various issues brought about by inequalities between men and women. EWFs is also on women’s rights, especially women’s participation in governance issues at local level. EWF activities are mainly in the Matabeleland North, South and Bulawayo Provinces.

EWF uses the rights based approach premised on rights holders ( women and girls) and their entitlements and corresponding duty bearers ( law enforcement agents, government departments, traditional leaders, religious leaders etc) and their obligations. EWF works towards strengthening the capacities of rights holders to make their claims and of duty bearers to meet their obligations.
