Who we are
The Women’s Initiatives for Gender Justice is an international women’s human rights organisation that advocates for gender justice through the International Criminal Court (ICC) and through domestic mechanisms, including peace negotiations and justice processes. We work with women most affected by the conflict situations under investigation by the ICC.
The Women’s Initiatives for Gender Justice works in Uganda, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Sudan, the Central African Republic, Kenya, Libya and Kyrgyzstan.
What we do
A refurbished Transit House, a project run by Actions des Femmes Pour les Droits et le développment (AFD) in collaboration with the Women’s Initiatives in South Kivu, DRC. This project provides psychosocial assessments and support for hundreds of victim/survivors of sexual and gender-based crimes and assists them to access medical services, including surgeries for rape-related injuries.
