Improvement of social integration of survivors and their children born from sexual and gender-based violence during the genocide in Rwanda
The overall objective of the project is to contribute to the local social reconciliation process in Rwanda which responds to long-term psychosocial consequences resulting from crimes against humanity during the 1994 Genocide, notably conflict-related sexualised violence (CRSV) associated with political conflict.
The project promotes a psychosocial approach centred on families living with children born of rape. With activities such as solidarity and self-help groups, psychosocial support, socio-economic follow up and/or sensitisation the local non-governmental organisation SEVOTA has improved psychosocial well-being of mothers and their children, helped them out of isolation and actively participate in social processes.
