NGO Safe Space seed funds

£740 of £2,000 goal

Raised by 18 people in 9 months
Alexia Pepper de Caires, Shaista Aziz and a small group of women founded NGO Safe Space in March 2018 to gather testimonies on sexual harassment, exploitation and abuse in the humanitarian aid and international development sector. We submitted this evidence to UK Parliamentary inquiries led by the Women and Equalities Committee and the International Development Committee (linked below).

Our platform is a response to the systematic silencing of women, which lies at the heart of media revelations of international NGOs' employment of men who sexualise and exploit others. We aim to drive accountability on harmful male behaviours, challenge patriarchal and racist structures and transform working cultures.

We need your help to build a platform for more people to come together and share their experiences to further our understanding of abuses of power. Seed funds will allow us to build an online platform, hear diverse experiences and organise ways to share our analysis.

As intersectional feminists we acknowledge our own power and privilege as we do this. We are always ready to hear how we can work harder to include under-represented voices and build our understanding of oppression.
