Frauen Initiative Uganda is a women-led community organization formed in 2020 in Uganda with the sole purpose of providing a safe space for victims of sexual violence.
The services provided by Frauen Initiative are emergency support in form of access to Rape kits and Post-Exposure Prophylaxis. We seek to do more than just provide for the victims but also to empower them to take control of their lives and not be held back by the unfortunate sexual violence they’ve had to go through.
At Frauen Initiative Uganda, we have also partnered with Women’s ProBono initiative to provide free legal aid to victims of sexual violence
We provide emergency medical aid. We work with the victim of sexual violence and the hospital/ clinic in their vicinity to carry out an HIV test, provide a rape kit, PEP and a morning after pill- all of which we pay for
We also provide sessions with a professional psychologist who has one on one sessions and helps victims of sexual violence during their healing journey
Our online work for the most part is activism and education. We use our online presence to not only shed light on what we do to and reach out to victims, but also to educate the community on various topics surrounding the issue of sexual violence. We have done this through numerous campaigns and twitter spaces.
Frauen Initiative Uganda hopes to positively impact the lives of people who have been victims of sexual violence. Frauen Initiative Uganda seeks to not only provide help to victims of sexual violence, but it also hopes to create a community with better understanding of sexual violence, how it manifests and how to curb the rise of it in Uganda. Any support provided will make a significant difference.
