• Gender-based Violence & Livelihoods

    Pin It

    Most displaced women find themselves in desperate economic situations. They must earn a living to sustain themselves and their families but the opportunities typically available to them expose them to abuse and exploitation.

    Self-sufficiency is vital for their well-being. Many women have skills that can help them generate income and build new lives in displacement.

    Livelihoods can protect against GBV if humanitarian programming is designed to mitigate the risks.
