After sexual assault or domestic violence, most victims do not report. Many tell no one. Who will believe them? Who will help? We train professionals and loved ones to take action. Together, we can help survivors pursue justice and healing.
"I've learned that bad things can happen to good people. I'll never forget the rape, but I know that I can return to life with my wound healed and my spirit unbroken." ~ Agatha
At End Violence Against Women International (EVAWI), we envision a world where gender-based violence is unacceptable; where perpetrators are held accountable, and victims receive the compassion, support, and justice they deserve.
Almost every day, we hear news stories of women who were raped, yet their assailants are never held accountable - leaving them free to commit more crimes with impunity. We are working to transform this reality, by working with professionals inside and outside the criminal justice system. Our goal is to protect victims, prevent future attacks, and keep our communities safe.
When we create a system that helps victims not only to heal, but to thrive, they will transform our world with strength, hope, and joy.
"I am beginning to believe that I can rebuild my life in a way that I feel safe and strong. I'll never forget what has happened to me, but I'm ready to use what I have learned to help myself and other victims." ~ Karen
