Addressing the issue of sexual violence within the humanitarian and development community
Sexual violence in the humanitarian and development industy is pervasive. 86% of humanitarians currently report knowing a colleague who has experienced sexual violence.
The work of Report the Abuse is the first attempt to begin addressing the issue of sexual violence within the humanitarian and development community.
We began last year, after our Founder and Director, Megan Nobert, had an experience with sexual violence while working as a humanitarian in South Sudan , and a growing recognition that the problem was much larger than that one experience.
How do we tackle this problem? Through providing a safe space for survivors. Through advocacy and awareness raising. Through working with the UN and NGOs to better prevent and respond sexual violence happening to their employees.
Your donation today helps us to:
- create survivor-centered resources;
- bring survivors together; and
- break down the barriers and silence around sexual violence against and within the humanitarian and development community.
Let’s do that together.
Let’s create a humanitarian environment free from sexual violence.
