Join us for this panel of speakers which includes Araika Zawadhafsa Mkulo, Emilia Siwingwa, Junayna Al Sheibani, Victoria Leonard.

This panel will showcase a budding multisectoral partnership to support survivors of sexual violence in Tanzania. In light of the prevalence of sexual violence and the lack of widespread or publicized support, Tanzanian activists, lawyers, psychologists, and healthcare professionals have joined forces to create a consortium where survivors can access legal counsel, psychological therapy, medical care, and funding support in one centralized hub.

This event is a part of the 2021 Global Women's Rights Forum which joins the celebrations and legacies of resistance centered on March 8th, International Women’s Day.
